    Well... no matter which way you go there it is hehe. I'm not too far from the ocean but the only chances that I get to go there are at night time. I love the ocean and I love the beach... a necessity wherever you live :) or atleast water of some sort.

    I Thought It Was a Dream For Retirement, But I'm In My Twenties.
