The wonderful thing about summer is that some of the season's best days are spent doing practically nothing. Sand crushed between toes, staring at crashing waves, laying on a towel, or driving with the top down and tunes blaring, taking in the view of beach cottages and sand dunes.
The warm sand on my skin, the cool breeze through my hair, the methodic and soothing sound of the sea makes Nantucket beach days nearly hypnotic.
While I love active days on the island, there is something special about Nantucket beach days, spent doing absolutely nothing. Letting your mind wander as hours pass in a slow and peaceful way is the best kind of meditation I can imagine.
