— Example: I walked along the wet sand, ocean water spraying in my face. I brushed droplets of water off my cheeks as the wind blew my caramel-brown hair In my face. Sand flew behind me as I jogged along the shoreline. I breathed in the fresh, salty air, staring out into the vast, open ocean, the waters like turquoise gems.
