It’s that wonderful time of year again when all we can think about is how fast we can get to the beach. The ocean refreshes us in ways nothing else can. We want to sit in the sand at the water’s edge with wavelets washing over us while we dream about sailing ships and distant islands. It brings back the happy feelings of childhood and gazing on the expansive horizon reminds us that the world is open to us and all things are possible. We’re inspired once again. But why just go to the beach? If we derive so much benefit from being on the ocean, why not live there or at least give ourselves the option of having our own beach house that we can go to anytime we need to get recharged?
