I reached out my hand to the horizon; I felt the sun rays on my fingertips. The waves crashed gently on my feet while the wind blew softly on my body. If not for the sand stuck between my toes I would be completely at peace. But as it stands I am in awe; I am overwhelmed by the beauty of this place. I am overwhelmed by its tranquility. But most of all, I am overwhelmed by what lies ahead.
