I grew up around rivers and lakes which while nice never enthralled me. When I finally saw an ocean I was overcome with the beauty and enormity of it all. Staring off into the horizon where the sky kisses the water; that was and still is a beautiful scene to me. As much as I love swimming and splashing in the ocean, I can be quite content just sitting there listening to the sounds of the waves; sunrise before the masses descend upon the sand is the best. Of course when it’s a crowded beach there are a lot of sounds that do not fall under the header of ‘peaceful’ but such is humanity and a beach on a warm sunny day.
So whenever I can, I try to visit an ocean and feel renewed. Plus fresh seafood is definitely a major bonus. Cannot beat that!
Terri, I am spellbound by the ocean too. Its enormity is very humbling to me.
And yes….. the seafood is definitely a huge bonus 🙂
I so agree! It is humbling 🙂
That is beautiful. Can’t wait to see the ocean again soon.
You are a bit closer to it than I am but hope soon for you.
I like how this image leads you down the path.
We were walking down the boardwalk there and I backed up to take this shot…and then headed towards it.
Photographers get good at walking backwards.
And sideways and in circles…lol
When I go to the ocean, I look out over the expanse and say “Oooh man! That is a lot of water!”
