Experiencing the ocean encompasses my whole being. It's the open space, the smell of the sea, the sound of the waves roaring then softly moving onto the shore. It's the misty foggy days when no ones there; And the bright sunny days when the warmth of the sun on my skin has me never wanting to leave. It's collecting shells, walking on the shore and gazing out at the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. The beach holds many memories for me. In my heart, it's nostalgic, it's home.
