We start the day bright and cheery to better make
a good impression for the remainder of the day.
Blackberries and blueberries atop plain yogurt
...and drowned in honey is a light and easy play.
We pile in a crew of our most willing and waiting personalities.
We leave the "Maybe's" behind waiting for their life to unfold.
We rev it up, hear it rumble and then let out the clutch.
We cut it short, to run back in to grab that one last thing we forgot.
Again, we let it roll on out.
We stop for the view and take notice of the small
...and subtle surprises that surround.
We snatch a souvenir that won't get us a arrested,
...and grab another snack to keep us roving.
Where ever we wander we will always obey and respect the terrain,
being sure to show no trail of destruction or neglect.
We even bring along our own bags to carry all our sandwiches, salads, chips.
We even pick up other people's trail of trash if need be.
We finally settle into our designated scene
and tickle our toes in the cold sea foam.
We watch kids dig for sand crabs and listen to them howl
as the seagulls steal their new score for their own meal.
We see the locals strolling by dogs in tow both tiny and tall.
We spy dolphins skipping along, and flipping for fun,
...and we'll all swim out to try and greet them knowing
all along they'll give a tease and keep on their run.
Pelicans will dive from the sky for their dinner with pride.
We make the most of the day my staying put as long as the light will allow.
..and our bladders hold out!
We day dream as a group and make tentative plans that
feed our fantasies and float our expectations.
We breath in deep through our nose,
...and breath out slow as we can manage through our sun kissed lips.
We make mental notes to do this again.
