going to the ocean at nightyesterday i went out to dinner with friends for a birthday.going to the ocean at night by crookedthief
the best part was going to the sea at night. we ducked down through this small kind of hallway of trees and it was dark and i still get a bit frightened in the dark but you could see the waves in the distance. it was beautiful so i kept going.
you're standing at the end of the country like it's the edge of the world and
standing at the shore of the sea was looking into something that could swallow me whole.
we're so tiny and nothing.
we ran around and laughed and i felt self-conscious the whole time because i wanted it so badly to be how it was in my head. how dumb, huh.
but it was fun. if i hadn't been wearing stockings i would have swam. i hugged my bag to my chest and i spun in the shallow water.
i've never liked the beach very much before and i'd never liked it so much in my life.
(australia, you're so beautiful at night.)
and then we took the bus around and eventually ended up home.
