10 Things I Like: #1

I really like the ocean. I like the way it smells, I like the roar of the waves, I like the way the sand squishes between my toes. I could watch the ever-changing waves forever. I especially like watching a storm roll in off the sea. The clouds roiling in the sky, the waves crashing upon the beach, the wind whipping my hair. It's all so exciting. Now I'm not talking hurricane here. Having lived in Florida and going through Hurricane David in 1979, I understand the devastation a storm like that can cause. But the power in an ordinary storm is so amazing. I really would like to live on the coast but I know that's not going to happen. So I will just continue to visit the sea anytime I can and revel in the vastness of it all.

I love the ocean and get to see it so rarely! I'm land locked!

I spent weekends one year on the waterfront, and like you I loved hearing the waves crash. The winter winds reminded me of my childhood. Brr!
