My life is a beach, man.

All this negativity….of the ionic kind. I love it.

I rolled into Cocoa Beach Florida last night at sunset, five hours , 45 minutes after leaving Marathon. The drive out of the Keys is slightly monotonous, with the average speed limit of 45 m.p.h. The scenery makes it worth-while. Driving a slightly narrow two lane highway that was once a rail line, you snake along through mangrove,  over high bridges and roadway built up a few feet from the water line.

Being next to and near large bodies of water, a body absorbs the negative ions that the water mass gives off;  which minimizes the positive ones the body has, creating an impressive amount of health benefits. A few of which are: increases the flow of oxygen to the brain, strengthens the body’s immune system, and reinforces collagen.

For me, to walk barefoot in the sand at the waterline, swim, or gaze upon a sunrise or sunset is enough.  Add a opportunity for a boat ride or discovering a hidden beach, just magnifies the experience.

I have a few more days ocean side, before I begin the trek to return to the Northland.
