Changing Tides

You wouldn’t recognize it anymore.

There’s a paved walkway from one end to the other.

Crowds gather all day into the night.

Our quiet place is only quiet in the darkest of nights

Or the earliest of mornings.

The music is no longer 80s and 90s pop and country,

Now the air is filled with Caribbean and Latin sounds.

The beach is dotted with showers and changing stations,

And the life guard stands are much improved.

Some things have gotten better,

Some things have definitely changed,

The gentle waves and the sunsets are still awe inspiring,

But our beach will never feel the same again.
