Gerry would have his book of Suduko and would be working on a puzzle. I would be reading one of the books that I had saved just for this vacation.
Now and then I would look out at the water or I would put my book down for a few moments and just watch the people walking by on the beach.
Before too long, Gerry would suggest a dip in the ocean to cool off. I would follow him, somewhat reluctantly, as there would be small fishes that would come near us when we entered the water, and I wouldn’t like their proximinty. I would also be somewhat uncomfortable with the waves, but Gerry would hold on to me and we would explore the waters.
After our swim, we would take a long walk on the beach, holding hands and talking. Eventually we would return to our sanctuary on the beach and perhaps close our eyes for a nap. No phone calls to return, no work needing to be done, no emails to answer.
Did I mention that it snowed today?
