It was a great day for the beach, cool, breezy, almost perfect. The tide was low, clouds in the sky; I could smell the ocean air as it blew by. The sound of waves crashing and horse flies buzzing, but none of this mattered to me as we walked up on all of this drift wood. I had never seen anything like it. “C’mon man hop up there”, I heard my dad say. As I climbed up on top it didn’t feel like an ordinary tree, it was a little damp but also dry at the same time. As I’m sitting there trying to figure out this tree, I notice my Dad pulls out the camera and says, “Let’s take a couple of sweet pictures for your mom, and then we can flex for the girls!
