Saturday Video: Memories of Bob Marley & the Beach
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always yearned to rush to the beach pretty much any time I see the sun shining in the sky. This even applies to my years living in New York when cooler days made a sweater more handy than a swim suit. For me, there’s no better therapy than a few hours spent amidst sand, sun and surf.
The soundtrack on many of my beach trips is a well-worn mixed-tape I made back in high school featuring my favorite Bob Marley songs. Most anyone who used to hang out with me at Sandy Point on Sundays in St. Croix would probably know the tape just by seeing, much less hearing it. The same collection of songs has accompanied me on beach excursions across the Caribbean, New Jersey, Florida and even as far away as Australia (One Love, Anna & Kasha…hope to see you guys again soon).
I still have a tape deck in my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, so I’ll be listening to that same cassette again in a few minutes on my way to Dania Beach.
See you at the beach!
