Creative Prompt #190: Wet

I am thinking about the beach, water and Hawaii a lot lately. Not sure why, because although I live close to the beach, the water is about 45 degrees on a good day and the air temperature is between 40-50 degrees, none of which is conducive to swimming in the ocean.

I thought a creative prompt would be a good way to get thoughts of warm sand, warm salty water, etc off my mind, but many of the water type prompts have already been used: pour, drink and ocean. I guess I think about water a lot.
