It was a stunning July evening and the sun was glowing, in the distance, as it made the water look like a sea of sapphires. I watched as the lamps dug into the sand lit up the starlight evening.Couples walking side by side were still imprinted into the already worn out sand.

When you're in love, The Beach is an adventure waiting to come alive and you feel like a little child building a sand castle for the first time. Each time you go, it is different and exciting, like a dog going back to the same bone, but getting a new flavor each time. But when you're alone and single, it's just ordinary and once again just a beach.

For me, it used to be The Beach, but since my husband died it's now just a plain beach. I was reminded of the tragic car accident that happened 5 years ago and I tried to get it out of my mind, but I couldn't. I could see it so vividly now that I can actually see my husband here at the beach in our favorite spot by the rock pool.
