Summer is here and for many of us summer brings to mind sand, sun, water—the beach! Oh, the beach with the seagulls crying, the waves crashing, the sun sparkling on the water, the scent of the salty air, the feel of the sand beneath our feet… Walking along the beach has a way of soothing us and at the same time, making us feel more alive. After a wonderful walk on the beach, finding a comfortable seat on a driftwood log, pulling a book from your backpack, and settling down to read is a moment of pure joy! So, head to the shore, enjoy the magic of the ocean, walk barefoot in the waves, then find that perfect spot, and check out one of the following beach-related books (both print and electronic) available through the Hatfield Library and listed on our WU Reads Reading Guide.
The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul. — Robert Wyland
If there’s heaven for me, I’m sure it has a beach attached to it. — Jimmy Buffett
