    Sitting On The Dock

    When I was younger (likealmost 30 years ago) we lived in Coos Bay, Oregon.  My step-father couldn't get a job, in a sense.  He supported us by taking us out on the docks, and loading crab nets with chicken parts, and reeling in the crabs every hour.  Made a pretty...

    I Could Sit And Stare At The Ocean All Day

    I Could Sit and Stare At the Ocean All Day Alone, in misty ocean air, Amidst the shore, I sit and stare. Fathomless realms of endless blue- Reflect the love I still hold for you. A love seemingly never-ending. Ever deeper in depth descending. Dazzling in the sun by daylight...

    Is anyone else scared of swimming in deep water

    where you can't see the bottom?!? It's just something weird I've always been unsure about 🌊☔️🌁

    Oh how I would love too,

    right now. I need the serenity...serenity now..,,serenity now....I should be happy, I am welcomed here. I feel trapped, it's hard to breathe around so many people. I don't like it, they're going to give me gifts, and although it's so warm and welcoming I have a very hard time...

    It seems like every wave tells a different

    story. It has been preparing itself for the moment is crashes on the shore, perhaps with a crash on the cliffs, or maybe just to tickle a child's feet. Each wave slightly different to the last.

    Fond Memories

    When I was a kid I used to live near the ocean, and would often rush home after school, hurry through my homework and then run the half block to the ocean, just to sit there until the tide came in. I also loved to toss bread crumbs at the seagulls, then chase them!!

    I really could. Just sit in the sand

    and stare off into the distance over an ocean. It's so pretty. Especially when the sun is setting and the wind is blowing in your direction but not super hard wind just enough to give you a cooling breeze that is inviting and makes you want to stay there forever.

    From The Shawshank Redemption

    Andy Dufresne:  You know what the Mexicans say about the Pacific?   Red: No.   Andy Dufresne: They say it has no memory. That's where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory. When I sit and stare at the ocean, I feel like it takes my memories...

    The ocean is just such a calm thing to watch.

    Plus, if I am sitting and watching the ocean all day then I wouldn't have to deal with any problems, because thinking about problems while sitting and watching the ocean is not allowed.

    I like it. It gives me a sense of serenity.

    It's an escape from reality. It takes me away from the hectic city I'm living in. My mind is at peace when I just sit there and stare out into the ocean. All my worries and pain would disappear for a bit..

    When I'm older, I want to live next to an ocean.

    It's sheer immensity is breathtaking and utterly beautiful. One of my life goals is to learn how to surf! I've also been scuba diving before, in Mexico, and I'd love to see the Great Barrier Reef.

    Walking along in the white silky sand barefooted

    and looking out over the pristine blue water, a shiny object glimmers in the snowy white foam of the soft unceasing waves, floating a few feet from the meeting place of the sand and water. I approached it questioning in my mind, what could this be? As I walk in to the cool...

    To me the vastness of the ocean is a reminder

    of God. So deep and imeasurable. Last time I went there it was to scatter some of my 22 yr old son's ashes. He died of drug overdose 5 months ago. His favorite song was by Florence and the Machine, "Never let me go" we played it at his funeral. I see the ocean and remember him...

    Every Day For The Rest Of My Life

    I swear I have sea water in my veins. The happiest time of my life was when I lived at the ocean. We had a four storey house at the top of a gorge going down to the sea. Our views were unrestricted and endless. My children were at school and kindergarten. Since they finished an...

    It's easy to let the mind become calm

    when under the trance of the oceans waves. It's easy to welcome clarity with sand between your toes. It's easy to get lost in the feel of the warm sun kissing your skin, melting away stress, fear, and negativity, leaving behind a blissful serenity.

    A person who does this,

    is at rest with Mother Nature and also has the patients to listen to the waves and watch every direction the water moves with the wind.
