Sandcastle Therapy

Oh, Sand Castle Days

Poet: John McLeod

Sweet memories enhance
The backwards glance
Long into childhood’s way,
Hours by the sea
Timeless, carefree
Where the sun brightly shone

Every day,
Looking out o’er the waves
Soft, memory saves
A joy that forever stays
Held deep in that part
Of one’s innermost heart…

Of so happy,
dear sand-castle days!

We have experienced day after day of clear blue skies and perfect temperatures of late. Sandcastle days!

I work in the morning while my daughter attends school. I pick her up at lunch time and we generally share lunch together before hopping in the car to head home where we stay cool from the midday heat and potter for a couple of hours…and then mid afternoon it’s been off to the beach…

These trips are lifting my recently flagging spirits…I can’t help but rejoice in the simple pleasures of swimming and splashing, rock climbing, rock pool discovery… and of course building sandcastles and making sand sculptures with my beautiful eldest daughter…Sandcastle days…therapy for the heart & soul!!
