Picture Perfect~~~Empty

Photobucket 
An empty beach or, so it would appear.  Appearances are deceiving.
This beach is filled.  Filled with memories.  The laughter of children.  The sigh of lovers, young and old, walking hand in hand.  Greeting the morning or watching the day end.  Memories of couples dancing.  Music filling the air.  Vows spoken here.  Decades of family outings.  
And the sea itself, filled with any number of magnificent creatures.
A beach filled with life, love and laughter.

  40. That's a great photo and you're right, it's very deceiving. Looking at the photo, I thought nothing of what you spoke of, till I actually read it. Then I could imagine all those things. Great job!
