The quiet walks along the beach are a time to take in the beauty as the sun shines across the ocean blue. A sea turtle may sidestep in front of you, the starfish lies ahead buried in the sand, and the pelicans dive in for their breakfast. It is at these times you reflect on the beauty that surrounds you.
However, nothing is more beautiful when you watch two women over the age of eighty frolic in the water. It’s tempting to take their picture as their youthful spirits and laughter come alive as they play in the waves.
They let the ocean throw them about and all you see is the glimpse of two beautiful swim caps adorned with plastic flowers bobbing in the water. It is the colorful flowers on their head that emphasize the zest of their youthful spirit. It is at these times and moments that growing old doesn’t look so bad.
These bathing beauties are a pleasant reminder that a girl regardless of her age will always have fun in the sun. I just hope I am as spry as those two bathing beauties!
Will you be a bathing beauty at the age of eighty?
