The beach was where we would spend a majority of our time.
Not just swimming, there were parks on just about every block the kids could walk to on their own to play.
I'd spend a lot of the summer goofing off there with the other kids from my block, or my cousins.
CULTUS WAS A PLACE WHERE I REMEMBER BEING MOST COMFORTABLE WITH MY SELF.
Looking back on those times I remember where I cam from, who I am, and in times of stress of low self esteem. I remember how I can be myself, and be most comfortable being me.
