    I spend my summers on a fishing boat.

    I don't see the ocean for the rest of the year. I miss the quiet nights anchored in some remote uninhabited cove. Stopping by small village stores for supplies is usually good, except where they don't like natives. It is a nice way to live, but it only lasts 3 months. Then back...

    My favorite childhood memories were being in

    the ocean even with the seaweed entangled in my legs and sharp rocks cutting the bottom of my feet. I loved the ocean so much. I also have fond memories of taking my daughter to the ocean every weekend while she was growing up.

    Fact: 95% of the ocean is undiscovered.

    You can't tell me mermaids don't exist yet.

    I don't know what it is about the ocean

    but that's where I want to be. The crashing of the waves and the way the water glistens under the moon light. I wouldn't mind being caught in the storm either cause if that's how I'll end up dying, then at least it's one of the ways of death I wouldn't mind.

    There is nothing wrong with enjoying looking at

    the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what's goes on under the water, you realize that you been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.

    I miss the beach. Being under the sun,

    hearing the waves, feeling the breeze on your skin.. That would make a perfect day. All I can do now is reminisce.

    I went to the beach this past weekend.

    It was windy and a bit chilly. It allowed me to clear my thoughts. I can't wait till the summer time. This is a yearly wish around this season.

    Love to stand at the end the pier in my town,

    listen to the waves crash, looking out miles ahead. On a clear day you can see France from Deal Pier. Just a place to relax if home is chaos, for a couple of hours.

    I live near to the Atlantic Ocean.

    I have had a difficult childhood. I have moved further from the ocean. When I was little I lived so close to the ocean I could hear the waves at night. Then I moved to a flat in town on the beach. It was quite scary when the waves were rough. Now I live on a farm. It isnt by the...

    don't think I could ever live far from the

    ocean, I'm Australian and have always lived with in a 10min drive of the beach often closer. its so much a part of my world that when I'm inland I think it smells odd because of a lack of salt and fish and everything else thats in the air.

    Hey y'all. Sailing is exciting

    and relaxing. One must focus on the wind 100% or things go wrong fast. At the end of the day you will be worn out but exhilarated. Much like sex.

    There is comfort in knowing how your life will

    end. Not exactly how or when, but enough of an idea that spending any time worrying about it seems like time wasted. Most men are born of the land. They till it, shape it, cut it down, and build it back up. They find comfort in the steady beat of terra firma and depend on a set...

    Crashing waves mesmerize me.

    The melodic push and pull of the sea soothes my soul. The ocean is a place of solace. It's where my spirit feels free to roam. The renewal of my senses. New found perspectives. The world gets less hectic.
