Sea Fever

"I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume and the seagulls crying."

-- John Masefield (1878-1967), "Sea Fever"

What a wonderful saying. The beach is my peaceful solitude. I hope oneday to live there like you. For now I just go when I can and rent a house in Oct after the crowds leave.
