Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air -Ralph Waldo Emerson
I recently ended up getting a new laptop. I haven’t transferred my old photos and the recent ones are sorely lacking in doors. Today, I was determined to find a photo to participate in Thursday Doors hosted by Norm 2.0 (you can pop over and click the blue link to check out other amazing doors).
Low and behold, I found a photo of a door on my phone (which is only there because I actually backed up my old phone and put all the information on the new phone. WooHoo!)
This was from our summer vacation to Carolina Beach, North Carolina. This door is on the alley between the two main shopping walkways that run parallel to the wooden boardwalk. The Carolina Beach Fire Department takes care of fires, medical responses, and the Ocean Rescue Life Guard Program. There are 20 lifeguard stands spread across approximately 3 miles of shoreline. The lifeguard season runs from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. During the season, they are there at 10:00 AM every day of the week and stay until 4:45 PM Monday through Thursday and until 6:45 PM on Friday through Sunday.
I need the sea because it teaches me – Pablo Neruda
I have three kids who love surfing, skim boarding, and boogie boarding, along with everything else the ocean has to offer. Given the fact that injuries can happen and also that the ocean is filled with animals who can be unpleasant, I appreciate the fact that this door exists.
You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf – Jon Kabat-Zan
I hope to never need lifeguard services, but have peace of mind knowing that they are there!
Let your light shine!
