The Beach

Surf crashing hard and a tricky undertow, floating and ducking. Salt in my eyes and sand in my hair and laughing through it anyway. Skewers of grilled shrimp and fish, fresh slices of jicama cucumber and melon with salt and chile. Crowds of vendors. Too many to mention. Except the pastry man- strawberry filled with powdered sugar. Slathering on the sunscreen, only missed my ankles. They’re throbbing. A beach day is always such a good day!
