We got to spend a day at the beach yesterday. The water was perfect. We spent 4 1/2 hours in it!!!
My brother and I like to go to the beach pretty much only because of the waves. We have fun jumping into them and floating in the salt water. Unconsciously we would be in the middle of a conversation and see a wave so we'd stop the conversation and jump in. Once we got up we would pick up the conversation where we left off. It wasn't something we planned, but it just happened.
My brother starting thinking this was similar to what should happen in life. We can't always have adventurers, but as we live our lives opportunities come for us to have fun. We can either chose to stop for a minute and take advantage of the excitement or we can continue living in our ordinary lives. Now on the other hand, we can spend all of our time just looking for waves to jump into and not experience normal life. It is possible to simply have no conversation but still find many waves. It is the balance of each that makes going to the beach (and living life) exciting. Just some randomly deep thoughts from my super-duper awesome brother of mine.
Overall, it was amazing to swim in the Mediterranean Sea and right next to Byblos.
