Dream Destination – My Soul Soars On The Beach

WordPress Daily Prompt: What’s your dream tourist destination — either a place you’ve been and loved, or a place you’d love to visit? What about it speaks to you?

When I think vacation, I think water and sun. I am not the typical vacationer who goes on trips to do tours and sightsee. For me, the most relaxing getaway is feeling the sand between my toes, getting wrinkled in the warm water from staying in all day, bright shining sun, delicious food, and staying in a hotel where I don’t have to clean up. Anything less is not relaxing.

I’m an island girl (born in Jamaica), so I jump at any chance I get to go back home, or at least find another beach to escape to. The sun and water are in my blood. Guess that’s why the majority of my vacation pictures all consist of the beach…go figure.

Mission Beach, San Diego CA – This part of the beach is rocky, but hearing the waves crash against the rocks/cliffs relaxes me.

So there you go, my life on the beach. I hate that I lost my pictures of Puerto Rico and Cancun, Mexico, but at least I have my memories….ahhhh, great memories!!

Looking at these pictures I realize that it’s time for another getaway. What beach would you suggest that I experience on my next escape? Feel free to comment and leave me your suggestions. I’m so excited to get your suggestion(s)!
