Somewhere along the way,
on our journey into adulthood,
we decide beaches are best
for sunning and sipping fruity drinks.
Only children actually
play in the sand,
so care-free they don’t even notice
that layer of sand caked on their skin,
all the way up to their knees.
After watching my four year old
gleefully covered in sand all week,
I’m pretty sure we grownups
are missing out.
