Student Life: Beach Day

Author: Hyabiel Daniel  | Student, Living Education – Charlotte, 2023-24

This past Sunday was nothing short of fantastic as a group of Living Education students decided to soak up the sun and sea. They traded their textbooks for swimsuits and embarked on an unforgettable beach adventure that left them with a treasure trove of memories. The day began with an air of anticipation as they gathered at the crack of dawn, armed with sunscreen, beach towels, and, of course, our adventurous spirits. The sun was peeking over the horizon as they arrived at the sandy oasis. The beauty of the beach in the early morning was breathtaking, and it set the tone for the exciting day ahead. The first step onto the warm, sandy shore starkly contrasted with the usual classroom, reminding them that the day’s purpose was to break free from the academic routine and embrace the simple joys of life. The calming symphony of ocean waves provided a natural backdrop to their day. They unfurled beach blankets, set up colorful umbrellas, and divided into groups, each choosing their path to enjoyment. Some even took an immediate plunge into the refreshing ocean. As the morning gracefully transformed into the afternoon, they assembled for a communal beachfront picnic, which consisted of homemade sandwiches, fruits, and chips. Post-lunch activities included seashell hunting, ocean exploration, and the construction of intricate sandcastles. Reluctantly leaving the beach that evening, their hearts were full enjoying the ride back home. They returned to their studies the following day, brimming with memories and the joy of shared experiences.
