This morning I woke up at 7:30 to a blue, cloudless sky with the sun on the rise. I could tell it was going to be a beautiful, warm day - one of the perks of living in California in January. Itching for some exercise, I figured going for a stroll along the beach was the right thing to do. The day was young and the sun was gearing up for some intense heat.
The mornings can be a little chilly but I knew that wouldn’t last for long. So I threw on my flip flops, some ¾ jogging pants, a short sleeve shirt, grabbed my mom and headed out. We decided along the five minute walk to the beach that the plan of action was to walk one length of the beach in the soft sand and on the way back on the hard sand.
Along the way we encountered all sorts of things: runners, yoga-ers, sun bathers, dog owners, dogs at play and most of all the special things that exist within and around the ocean. The waves brought in heaps of seaweed running at least 15 yards long. Its rounded bulbs the size of my hands. The glistening gold, wet sand was covered by the mellow waves and then given room to breathe and show its beauty.
A morning walk along Coronado beach, whether that’s with someone or solo (I suggest some headphones and tunes) is one of the best ways to start off the day.
