This is one of my slightly secret, favorite places to go on rare occasions, and it's very special to me. I remember the last time I was here, I was insanely happy — the kind of happy where everything is warm and just on the cusp of making sense. I climbed out on some rocks and was so distracted by taking pictures, that I didn't realize the tide had come in and I ended up completely stranded in the middle of the ocean. I had to be helped back to shore and almost lost my camera, and I didn't even care cause when you're that happy, you could fall into the water in a million-dollar outfit and not give a damn.
Today I was not afforded such stupidities.
