As I walk along the coast of the opposite side of the Earth from home, I recognize the surreal beauty of the world that we live in. I look out into the distance and see nothing but thousands of miles of bright blue ocean water. All I can hear are the sounds of the waves as they break upon the sun-covered rocks beneath me. It is so hard to believe that all of this peacefulness is only a couple of miles away from one of the biggest and busiest places in the world.
What an amazing way to escape from the rush of a city and spend a day relaxing on your own. As I continue moving on, I begin to approach another beach, this one marked by groups of surfers waiting for the perfect wave to ride in to shore. It is unbelievable to think about how there is so much in the world that I have not seen. I gaze around in amazement of how it has formed the way it has.
How did these huge rocks get all the way up here? I take a seat on the side of the cliff to take in the art of nature, and I begin to realize that right on the other end of this water, everyone lays asleep under the night stars. The Earth is a marvelous place.
