Autumn Approaches, But The Ocean Beckons

Living in a state that doesn’t experience many seasons always seems to make me feel like I’m missing out on something. The leaves don’t change colors, nor do they become crisp and fall off of their respective trees. Although I love where I live, I sometimes wish that there was more variety throughout the year. I wish that I could have the experience of walking through a park littered with red and gold leaves, and that I could feel the crunch underneath my feet. It always seems so magical and mysterious. I suppose, however, that if I had the choice of living near the ocean or actually experience seasons, I would forever choose the ocean. I don’t do well in places where I can’t smell the sea air. So maybe it’s a trade off. Dolphins and eternal mystery instead of seasons. I think I can live with that.

  1. I’ve always struggled when I’ve lived places without definitive and varied seasons. I love autumn so much that I couldn’t do without it! I think my ideal would be somewhere along the New England coast, where you get the rocky shoreline AND the autumn leaves.

      I’ve never been to the New England area, but it’s definitely on my list of things to do! I’ve heard that the fall season is absolutely gorgeous up there. I would love to go and watch the leaves change colors! 🙂
