You can learn a lot about life by looking at footprints in the sand.
Have you ever noticed, for example, that dogs and small children rarely walk in a straight line on the beach? There’s a message there.
I believe that ladies should never walk in high heels in the sand. Do yourself a favor pretty ladies; take the necessary time to remove your shoes and give your toes a chance to be tickled by the sand.
Some people drag their feet when they walk in the sand. I’m guessing they’re tired or injured. If you have the ability to do so, pick up your feet when you walk in the sand. It’s good exercise and you look better to others who may be watching you.
Bird prints are always intriguing to me. They look like presses used for holiday cookies.
It seems that some people walk with a mission in the sand. Their paths are straight and with purpose. Their strides are widely spaced. Nothing wrong with that but don’t be afraid to veer off a bit if you see a pretty sea shell.
The best looking footprint in the sand, in my humble opinion, is the one that’s barefoot and wanders somewhat aimlessly. The beach is a great place to let the mind drift freely.
