Ever tried to run through water? The resistance kills you huh! Well, I definitely get that feeling when I try and wheel my frame on sand. On the soft stuff, I hardly move and end up lifting it with each step. It’s usually hot too, and with no temperature sensation on my left side, wearing bare feet is not an option – I can’t run either:(if only they designed conveyor belts for the beach!)
Then there’s the harder sand, that once covered my toes but now it’s more like walking on quick sand and if I stand still it swallows the aid.
I once loved letting the waves chase me. I still get the adrenalin rush now when it hits, but this time there’s no escape. ‘Tagged’ by the ocean:(
For me, I’m concentrating too hard on my feet (so not to fall) that I don’t see the view. However, hearing the crashing waves and smelling the wafts of sunscreen and seaweed that lap me and my frame, relaxes me.
