1: Dedicated to Barbara Michel who has the unique gift to make every person feel like you alone are her favorite guest at The Longboat Key Club by Linda Ballance

2: "There is nothing more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which, alas, musicians read but too little---the book of Nature." --Claude Debussy

3: "I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm." --Unknown

5: Its center is the star that appeared unto the shepherds and led them from afar. The Christmas poinsettia etched on the other side reminds us of His birthday our happy Christmas time. Now break the center open and here you will release the five white dove awaiting to spread good will and peace. This simple little symbol Christ left for you and me to help us spread the gospel through all Eternity.

7: At the beach, just another day in paradise!!!!!

8: "My life is like a stroll on the beach... as near to the edge as I can go." --Henry David Thoreau, The Fisher's Boy

12: "I have the world's largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world... perhaps you have seen it." --Stephen Wright

13: "There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and hunt for hidden treasures." --Mark Twain

14: "At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but moment to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun." ---Anonymous

17: "The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach." --Henry Beston

18: "Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind." --Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

20: "The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should be empty, open, choiceless as a beach--waiting for a gift from the sea." --Anne Morrow Lindbergh

24: "Why does the ocean rock the moon to sleep every night? So the sun will wake and kiss the beach." --J. Henson

31: "As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love." --Anonymous

34: Reminders of the carefree days, building castles in the sand.

35: "To find a seashell is to discover a world of imagination." --Michelle Held

39: "Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me." --Albert Schweitzer

40: "Ocean treasures left on the shore, Nature's gift to adore." --Unknown

43: "Happiness is a summer breeze, sand between your toes and your best friend by your side." --Unknown

45: "Si tu veux savoir combien je'taime, compte les vagues" "If you want to know how great my love is, count the waves." ---Unknown

47: In every drop of water, there is a story of life. In every grain of sand, there is a story of the earth.

52: "I could never stay long enough on the shore, the tang of the untainted, fresh and free sea air was like a cool, quieting thought." ---Helen Keller

54: "Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches." --from "The Princess Bride" - Wesley to Buttercup

58: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." --Mark Twain
