It was a lovely day in last summer when after a long drive and arriving with not more than a half hour to spare before sunset, I was able to capture this shot. This couple was leaving the beach, not talking but enjoying life’s simple pleasures. They walked together snuggled up, toes filled with sand. The ocean waves and cool breeze drowned out most of the chatter of nearby kids playing in the sand—they could hear each other’s hearts beating. It was a good day.
