My Venture into the Sea

The long breakwater goes out into the sea, almost a mile, protecting the Rockland Harbor. I tried two years ago to walk it's length, and failed. The wind was blowing and the tide was up; my fear of bridges took over and I just couldn't make the walk to the enchanting looking lighthouse at the end.

Yesterday, holding on to the strong hand of my patient husband, I tried again. With my eyes looking down every step of the way, as not to step in the crevices, and my back hurting from the tension of the journey, I did it! I made it to the Lighthouse!

Tomorrow I will venture out, in a boat, into the sea. I am trying to live these moments fully.
