Travel Theme: Land Meets Water | The Sandbar Is My Wedding Aisle

In response to Where’s my backpack? Travel Theme: Land Meets Water.

Do you have a favourite spot where land meets water? Yes, of course!

The Sandbar Is My Wedding Aisle

I still cannot forget that magical moment in which I walked down a sandbar with my partner. I felt like we were walking down the church aisle with the sounds of wedding bells. Hand in hand, we relived our promise to one another.

At the same time, I felt the immense sense of satisfaction, as I witness a geological phenomenon playing itself out before my eyes and literally under my feet. I was walking on a pristine, white, sand path that was slowly, but surely disappearing under the sea, as the tides rose by the minute.

The side of the sand path that was being hit by strong waves, slopes down steeply and was very rocky. The rocks hurt my feet as I attempted to walk into the seawater from that side. The other side of the sand path, that was facing gentler waves, slopes down gently and had no rocks. The soft, clean sand caressed my feet as I stepped gingerly into the sea. The sea level was below my knee for as far out as five metres. The currents were strong though.

I, had never expected that I would meet with such a wonder before I went on the trip. I had not even know that a sandbar exists.

It was so unplanned that I still do not know where exactly this place is in the world. We were brought there by the boatmen along the way back to Phuket main island.

So it was that I kept looking back at the sandbar which had gone underwater. I waded back up the aisle to board the boat with a reluctant heart.

I felt the drizzle on my face and was sure that heavens could not bear the parting as well.

Later on, we found out from the boatmen that the skies are always stormy around there. Winds are huge, and waves are strong. The locals do not settle there.

Below is a look at the vegetation at the sandbar:

Where land meets water, I savour the memories we had together, especially on this sandbar.

Enjoy.

There are many locations where land meets water. What kind do you enjoy? Comment and share below.
