For an early anniversary present, he gave me a misty, empty beach. The morning sky was gray, like black and white film, and the ground covered in a slow, rolling fog. The tide was very low and it felt like a mile before we actually reached the water’s edge. We planned to walk along the beach for just a little while then go back to our motel, but we spotted the roller coaster in the distance and that became our goal. We weren’t leaving until we could stand next to its vast skeletal maze. It is a gift to spend mornings in silence together, lost in the mysteries of the sea.
