When I was a child, my parents used to go to the beach near our place. That’s why I love beaches. We usually enjoy the cool, fresh breeze and wanted to swim in a blue, cold beach. There’s a feeling of coolness when we stepped onto the water, it’s so cold, sometimes the water is green. We could see the swimming pieces of fish.
There were times that my Nanay (that’s how we call our mom) or Tatay (our dad) would lie down and we enjoy covering them with the sand. Just imagine, only the face were not covered. Because old ones believed that the sand in the seashore could be of help boost and can boost their health. So we always did that every time we visited the beach.
That’s one of my memories that is still fresh in my mind until now. We really had a lot of sharing moments and fun, sometimes we come to the water and play. After which when we’re very hungry, we ran to Nanay and ask something to eat. Often times, we ate “ibos” the delicacy of our place with our injan mango fruit, fresh from our tree planted by Tatay. Memories linger in times when you want to reminisce the past and remember the good times shared by family and friends.
It’s nice to remember and reminisce the past, it gives a healthy feeling and sometime in the past, you enjoyed and remember the happy moments, it’s memorable and a blessing!
