For me though, this is my second ocean retreat- my time with the Lord, walking along the shore, in the presence of the Lord, listening to the reading of His Word ,and drawing strength. It's our time alone.
My husband knows every mile of this island, biking for hours every day, this being his routine now.
I know the same sandy spot where I have sat with our children building sand castles, or digging deep, filling with water, making mud pies to smear over each other, then rushing to catch a wave and wash clean again. Blessed memories of cherished times- all grace gifts received with a thankful heart.

It was here last year, on my first ocean retreat with the Lord, that God granted my deep desire to be baptized in the ocean.
Today is the one year anniversary!
