The sun is so bright it sets fire inside your eyelids.
You dig your feet under the scorching sand on the surface to the cool damp layer beneath.
The waves, the birds, the giddy squeal of kids, join in a crashing, ecstatic lullaby.
Ahhhh… if only it were not February, snowing for the umpteenth time this winter. If only you could peel off those many layers of thermals and wool and run splashing into the azure waters of the Caribbean, or Andaman, or Mediterranean Sea.
Until then… there’s Instagram Beach Lust. A few beach photos from our round-the-world adventure.
Be sure to visit some of the other participants in the Instagram Thursday linky, like Destination Unknown. And join the fun with your own Instagram Travel Thursday post.
