Any vacation we take involves a body of water: a river, a lake, a marsh, a waterfall, a pond or creek. One of the best parts of our vacation to Ocean State was, simply, the ocean. Whether we were walking along a cliff and looking down at the waves, or at the beach, swimming and skimboarding and playing in the surf, building sandcastles or digging holes at the water's edge, or simply sitting on the sand and staring into the waves, the rhythmic sound and salty smell of the ocean was a constant presence. Whether the day was foggy and cool, or bright and sunny, it was wonderful just to be at the shore, feeling small and humble in the presence of that vast expanse of water.
