We are very lucky to live close to the beach. Maybe not the perfect beach, but still, any beach is more than enough when you are able to go for a swim almost every day during the summer months.
Before we became parents, we used to go for a swim fairly often…well, nowadays, we hardly ever miss one day. Because this is the time when we get to see our little guy being his most excited self and, this, is truly a gift. No toys or games in the world can make him feel as happy and free as he is when playing with the water and the sand.
Every time we go is so similar to the previous one, yet almost as full of new adventures and discoveries. It is amazing to witness the connection with the simple joys of nature. At the end of the day, what more can you ask, than a 2.5 year old running towards the sea, lying in the shallow water and, with all his calm and honesty, exclaiming ‘ahh, that’s what life is about’!
