Winning by the Sea

I need the sea because it teaches me.  

Pablo Neruda

A week of rest and slowing down by the ocean.

Who could ask for more? Reading In Praise of Slow by Carl Honoré, stopping by local coffee shops, having a nap in the afternoon, walking with an umbrella. Seeing large-lensed cameras in front of Munro’s books, timed beautifully with 82 year old Alice Munro named as the first female Canadian Nobel Prize winner in Literature. Eating chocolates in the middle of the day and watching gigantic gulls swooping down on unsuspecting tourists. Admiring rubber boots in a variety of fashionable colours and patterns.

Meeting this 91 year old half-marathoner (and his girlfriend!). Ahh, this is what builds holiday memories.
