Back in January, we took a day trip to Virginia Beach to check out a local skate shop (I wanted to upgrade from my current starter skates). After a few hours there, we rushed to the sand and got some final glimpses of the sea before the sun dipped below the horizon. It was an unusually warm January day.
They didn’t have a lot of different types of skates to try on at this shop, but I did learn my first important piece of information when it comes to my feet and skates: The skates I had on were 2 sizes too big. TWO! Bummer.
That was the first time my feet stepped on the sand since – since I don’t know when. I miss the beach. It’s where I belong.
Since I didn’t have many choices of skates to try on, we made plans to take another day trip to another skate shop.
Next stop: BROOKLYN!
