Mom's description of the scene on the beach

This activity usually takes place on our annual trip to sweet St. Lucia.  We would either be relaxing on the sandy beach or sitting on our balcony outside of our room. 

I always look forward to these moments with Mom.  She takes her time to describe things to me.  Anything from the dog strolling along and stopping to sniff the sand or sit and look up at the sun, to the cat running along and chasing an unseen shadow. 

Then she would describe the boats anchored out in the bay and tell me such things as their colors, how many people are on board and what, if anything, they are doing.  Then the sea itself!  A vivid description of how it looks: color, the waves, the swimmers, and so much more.  

I can practically sit there and have it all come into my mind and I can picture so much.  Mom tells me as much as she can and many times her descriptions include physical make ups and facial expressions, and effortless pictures of fruits and goods being sold. 

Then there are the dogs and cats themselves and let's not forget the birds, trees, and the skies.
