I love fresh air, don’t you? It’s so nice to be able to walk on the beach while taking in the ocean breeze. I travel back to Los Angeles every few weeks now to see my parents and when I do I make sure I get a chance to walk along the ocean. It’s a great way to exercise without having to go to a gym and there is nothing like hearing the ocean crashing against the shore.
I took these pictures around 9am as I was walking on the sand. Have you ever walked briskly on the sand? What an excellent workout. You may be wondering why I didn’t get into the water. Well, the ocean is beautiful but this portion of the Pacific Ocean is cold. And I do not like cold ocean water so I simply look at it but there is no way I would go in it. And it’s not the cleanest water (I think going to beaches around the world has spoiled me!) so I enjoy it from afar.
When I am home in Charlotte, I normally workout at the gym but when I travel, I have to still try and stay fit so I have to do other things. Walking on the beach is a wonderful way to get my cardio in while taking in the beauty of the surroundings.
