The Calming Effect of the Ocean

For years now, I have noticed the effect the ocean has on me. My husband and I used to travel down to Cape Cod every Friday when he worked third shift. His days were free and it was a great escape for us.There is something that draws us to Cape Cod and although we no longer go every Friday, we go often.

This was one of those weekends, a spur of the moment thing, except this time we went all the way to Provincetown (or "P" town for those who are familiar to New England). Provincetown, for those of you who don't know, is the curly part of Massachusetts on the map- or the tip. We stayed at a hotel across the street from the ocean. We took full advantage of that by walking the shore in the middle of the night. The stars were crystal clear. The seals were barking but other than that we were completely alone. Enjoying the peace the ocean brings us. It's fascinating really because we don't know why it has the same effect on both of us.

Last night we walked along all of the quaint little shops. The shops and restaurants were all open. We ate, we walked, we laughed and talked and we held hands for two days straight. It sure is nice to get away alone once in a while.
