happy father's day

A picture of my dad at the beach—he was about ten years old when this photo was taken. He wasn't much of a fan of the water, at least as far as I know, but we always lived near the ocean when I was growing up.

He was born on 14th Street in Manhattan, but his family moved to the Jersey Shore when he was a kid, and he spent most of his life there or at least nearby.

The past ten years is probably the longest I have spent living somewhere (D.C.) that it takes more than ten minutes to drive to a nearby beach, but that is soon about to change.

I miss you dad, and will be thinking about you when I get the sand between my toes once again . . .
