There's nothing more colorful than a beach town. People have to paint more often because of the sunshine, salty air and constant winds. Here, their chosen colors are bright and cheerful, boldly standing out in the clear sunshine, stark against bright white clouds and blue skies.
Salty air, fresh seafood, children laughing, sunshine blazing, gulls calling, waves crashing - a beach town has a way of lightening ones load, carving out grins and cleansing lungs and souls.
I miss some things about town living, but would feel a hole left by the colorful houses and palm trees. Most of all, I would mourn the loss of vast stretches of sunshine and clouds. Here, my soul has been lifted and my heart has found a new song.
