An Ode To Aberdeen Beach
Oh, Aberdeen Beach.
You are sometimes called “Fun Beach,”
which makes us smile.
You are the first place we visited when we came to Aberdeen.
And you are the first place we bring our visitors. Usually as soon as they arrive.
It’s the North Sea! I say to my family and friends.
It’s so cold! They say when they stick their toes in the water.
Yes. All beaches are not warm apparently.
And you, Aberdeen Beach. You are never warm.
I mean sometimes crazy kids take their coats and even their sweatshirts off, but I always have my coat on.
I always bundle up for a walk on your sands.
And I wear my wellies so I can stomp through the water.
Nope, you are not warm, but you are still lovely.
And you are fun.
And I have loved walking with friends in all seasons by the sea.
I don’t know where I am going next but I suspect it will not be so near to the North Sea.
So I will carry a few bits and pieces from my days of walking on your shores.
And I promise to always treasure the wind blown days of living by the sea.
