Call me nuts, but the water in Natasket Beach in late October really isn’t too cold to go for a dip.
If there’s a strong breeze, you’ll see a clan of surfers in their black wetsuits, catching a wave amidst a flock of seagulls. The brisk ocean breeze fills my lungs. I contemplate whether I should take a dip. I take the brave step and am quickly rewarded by the wonderful sensation.
Nantasket Beach is known to have a extreme range of tide of 12.5 feet.
There’s something about blue water that gives me a tranquil feeling deep and down inside.
I can go for a swim, or a 3-mile run on the beach and get the same feeling. That’s probably why I’ve been feeling on top of the world, spending my nights sleeping in my cab, 50 yards from the beach, listening to the ocean surf all night long.
