This is where I learned what you do on a beach vacation.  Recline in the shade, and listen to the waves crash upon the shore, with a book, and no electronic devices.  This was a shocking discovery to me.

From the moment I took this photo in 2010, to present day, this is the lockscreen photo on my phone.  All the time.  I love it so much.

Back in 2010, I was just finishing up my first year in consulting, and my firm took the entire consultant contingent to Cancun for our annual meeting.  This was the best, most awesome, and incredible benefit from a job I have ever had.

Up to this point in my life, I’d always gone on adventure travel – museums, city walks, immersion in cultures – and this is still what I love.  This, however, was the defining trip that broadened my travel consciousness to include relaxation, spa and beach experiences.

So, what do you do on a beach?  Nothing, except allow the sound of the waves wash the mental static away.  For me, the sound of waves, the caress of the sea breeze, and soaking in the solar vitamin D  always make my brain feel fresh and clean.

This series of photos will have a few more seascapes…Enjoy!
