Beach Dreams


Contest cover

What is a beach dream?

Is it a doorway to childhood memories? A longing for lost love? A magical vision of the past or the future?

Beach Dreams contains stories as varied as dreams themselves. There is something for everyone here, from a young man’s dream to own a jazz club to a young woman’s memories of making pysanky with her grandmother, and from the haunting story of a World War II soldier to the haunting of a miserly man by the ghost of Bob Marley. So, whether you’re stretched out on a blanket in the sun or curled up in a chair by the fireplace, relax and enjoy Beach Dreams.
