No matter how many times I walk out on to the beaches of 30A and downshift from the hustle & bustle of the world, there's one thought that always impacts me: "Wow, I'm standing on the very edge of a continent". An entire continent! Now, some may say there's no difference in standing there versus the nearly infinite number of other places I can stand, and I guess in the literal sense they're correct, but there is a difference in emotional impact. I mean... look at the map. Out of that ENTIRE land mass of 9,540,000 (that's 9.54 million) square miles of land, I'm standing on the very edge of it where one world (land) ends and another world (massive water body) begins. I realize that a similar geographical experience may occur on other coastal positions, but when you have that beautiful blue water of the 30A beaches staring back at you as you stand on that sand... well... you quickly realize that you're in the presence of the greatness of nature.
How about you? What do you think about as you look outward from the beach?Posted by Shaun Larson on
