    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.

    I live oceanfront on Maui with a spectacular view of the harbor and the entire northshore. It's odd to think how I got here, four years ago with a bookbag on my back and a hundred bucks in my pocket. When I was a child, I went to the beach in Virginia and North Carolina with my...

    Indeed I Do

    living by the ocean is indeed a great blessing that has been bestowed upon me. each morning i wake up tired, and unmotivated to go through another day at work, but as soon as i step outside and breath that sea air and see that dark blue ocean fading into a light blue sky, i am...
