November 2nd, first beach day of the summer. I forgot how good it feels to drive half an hour out to a secluded beach and to be almost completely alone. It feels like another world and it’s really refreshing. It’s crazy how just driving out to the beach with music playing so loud is enough to make you happy to be alive. I don’t remember the last time I felt such intoxicating joy but it was a really welcomed feeling. The weird patch of sunburn on my back and sunburn up the back of my legs, however, was not.
