    My Home

    The one place I feel most at home and at peace with the world is floating out in the ocean on my surfboard. I don't even really need the waves, I can just sit there and think and be free. I can let all my worries and my cares float away with the tide and just relax.

      Growing up in the Midwest it wasn’t till I was 14 that saw the Pacific Ocean. It was like something magical beyond words. It couldn’t be described as peaceful for you can hear the waves crashing. The world seems endless & so beautifully clear. It...

    It's true that most beaches are dirty (public

    ones usually) but if you go out and find state park beaches, they're so beautiful and you can find cool rocks and seashells there. I remember one time we were there and suddenly misty fog rolled in. It looked so magical.

    The sunshine alone, makes me happy to be there, but the water and the waves are a huge factor, as is the colors... The ocean is so amazing to me, because it can be so calm and peaceful, or on another day in another part of the planet, it can be raging with huge crashing waves...
