Beach musings

Is there anything more wonderful than cresting the steps to the beach when the horizon opens up and you feel all small? Why, yes. It’s amazing enough that you’re at sparkly Crane Beach, all sticky from the car and ready to trudge along the boardwalk to cool off down by the water, when you discover this ocean chalkboard. A poem unravels at your feet:


The letters erode along with the beach, and I like the faint whisper of words clinging to the worn wood.

  1. That’s a pretty neat idea. I’ve always wanted to put inspirational prose on my own staircase but it is so poetic to have it on a staircase at the beach where everyone can see them.
    And the stairs themselves are so rustic. I’d go to the beach just to look at them.
