Relaxing in the Beach

I feel that the Atlantic Ocean at Wrightsville Beach can rival many Caribbean destinations where the sky seems to melt into the ocean. One of the joys of having our grandchildren around is being able to appreciate and enjoy their ability to 'just be in the moment'. I think this photo will warm everyone's heart and stir memories of being young again and the simple enjoyment of the sun, sand and ocean.
