Isak Denison once wrote that the cure for anything is salt water: tears, sweat, or the sea

Personally, I’d much rather take my cure from the sea, than sweat or tears.

We really should get out here more often.

This wasn’t Gem’s first trip to the beach; last time she was just a few months old, so it’s unlikely she has a memory of it.  But she took to it like it was already her favorite place in the world.  We didn’t tell her where we were going, but when she saw the water she immediately started trying to unbuckle herself, and yelling “Beach! Beach!” Either that, or she was calling me a bitch, but I don’t think she’d be quite so enthusiastic if that was the case.

My little girl definitely inherited her parent’s love of the sea.

Every day since she has asked to go back to the beach. Perhaps it’s time to go get some more cure.
