Seeping into the soul

Leaving the beach after a summer's day is always bittersweet. There is the tendency to take one last look at everything. It is as if we don't want the memories to leave, so we try to soak up the ambience in our storage memory as we go. It is a place the has managed to seep into your soul.
A look at the lifeguard chair as the sun sets and we walk up the beach. A look back at the pathway and another chair in place. And then you get it when you look back at one more place walking to the car.
You see one more lifeguard chair with a couple. They are looking at the hazy sundown colors on the southern horizon. You realize that they are keeping the watch for the next beach day. And holding the chair until the morrow.
The Soul's Beach ViewUpon the close of a beach day at East Matunuck State Beach as a couple sits in a vacated lifeguard chair and share the muted color in the haze illuminated by the setting sun. South Kingstown, Rhode Island
