Well, I would definitely categorize yesterday as a “beach” kind of day. The reason why I say this is because it was a really hot day; at least in the 80s. And so, my friends and I all decided to spend the majority of our day at Horseneck Beach in Westport. In fact, this was the first time that I have ever gone to this beach. I mean, I have always been to Fort Phoenix (because I live right around there) but the Fort does not match anything like Horseneck. This beach was just absolutely beautiful.
Before entering the beach, the first thing that you see are just hills and then after that, just sand around you. There were so many people that were just laying out their towels and relaxing under the sun (they were thinking the same thing as me; just spend the day at the beach). But, the first thing that I did after laying my towel on the sand was jump into the water.
Now, I typically hate going in beach water because I hate feeling seaweed as well as any mysterious critters that lurk the bottom of the ocean. Although it is really cool to see the sea animals, I am just not a fan of feeling things in the ocean. It just freaks me out. But, fortunately at Horseneck though, the only thing that people could see in the bottom of the ocean was sand. Yes, I was in the sand back. Even though the water was pretty cold, nothing stopped me from going out. Unfortunately though, my friends were kind of acting like babies for not going in; they were listing millions of excuses as to why they do not want to go in. But it’s alright, I was having a good time just relaxing and riding out the waves that were coming ashore. Quite honestly, I think the main reason why I just jumped in without ever thinking of scary scenarios of things that could happen in the ocean was because of this internship-Southcoast Energy Challenge.
It just made me realize that life is too short and that we have to sometimes take a step back from society and just enjoy what is around us before it’s too late. We have to act now in order to further preserve the beauty of the world before our future generations reach that “total destruction” path. Yesterday was a great day and I look forward to have more days like that for the remainder of my summer vacation.
