We were packing up to leave the beach when the clouds that had been watching from up on the mountains suddenly and unexpectedly rushed onto the shore and surrounded us. 
We looked at each other, dropped our bags and raced ungracefully back to the water.
Trying my best not drop my camera into the ocean, I took these pictures from inside a cloud, while swimming in the sea. 

I’m grateful to live in such an incredible place.
I’m grateful for friends like Ashley who will gladly drop everything for the opportunity to swim in a cloud. 
I’m grateful that by some miracle (and a lot of awkward and desperate arm maneuvers) I didn’t lose my camera to those treacherous waves.
I’m just so, so goddamned grateful for moments like these.
