Learning to Love the Beach

Ok, I’m going to make an extremely controversial statement. . . 

I love the beach. 

You may laugh at the sheer banality of that statement. “Of course you do. Everyone loves the beach!” Well, here’s the thing: if I was writing this just a week prior, this story would be very different.

Happy Holidays From Cambridgeshire, England

 Just a few weeks ago, we posted an article about our visit to the Ely Cathedral. That article featured a short descriptive prose I wrote for a competition. There was a limit of 800 words (which is way less than it seems for a fan of run-on sentences), and it had to fit the theme Lonely Planet was searching for.

A lot of the personal aspects of the trip that I included ended up in the trash bin. And why do I think this trip is holiday themed, you ask? Well, it was cold, rainy, romantic, and hectic. Plus, it was the first actual “winter” I’ve experienced in a long time. The holidays are more about feeling than time of year, right? (You’ll just have to let it slide this once).

The Salton Sea: Remains of a Californian Boom Town

As I walked along the yellow, bubbling shoreline I saw nothing but empty footprints in the cracked ground, the blurred horizon line, and death. The Salton Sea is, in essence, a marine graveyard.
