If you don’t already know, I’m back in Canada. The girls and I endured the epic 30+ hours in transit and arrived in Toronto late Wednesday night.
Leaving Cape Town was melancholy. It’s my first home. It’s a place I love like no other. There’s just something about living beside the ocean. When I’m feeling down, all I have to do it look around me, and somehow everything’s okay. Knowing that the next chapter in my life is going to be decidedly urban, I was determined to take in my surroundings one last time: hopefully find a way to imprint the crashing waves and rocky mountains behind my eyelids so that whenever I’m feeling stressed, I can just transport myself back.
While running around on the beach, April proclaimed that she’s going to miss the ocean more than her friends. I do so love my friends, but I think she’s right.
