    Ocean Girl

    I am a lover of the sea. An ocean girl to the core. I love the sea so much I am miserable when a year passes and I haven't at least dipped in it. Two months ago I dipped my feet in the waters of southern Greece after an absence of 6 years and it felt wonderful! I wish I could...

    I live by the sea. Tonight it is quiet.

    Two days ago the waves were big and noisy.

    Love being near the sea.

    The smell. The gentle rolling of the waves. Love it!

    Song of the Sea The surf strokes the wet sand.

    The wind tosses my curls. Seagulls dip, soar, and argue. Pockets of water along the shore heat up. Little beds of life living... Algae brushes the wet breathing rocks. The tide turns and glances back at her sea. The sun breathes its light through each bursting wave. The sky...

    Ok. I said it was quiet.

    It ain't. The tide has come in. It's noisy. Where I live we have a huge tidal range. The Bay of Fundy in Canada has the highest. We have the second highest! One minute there is no water to be seen. Six hours later the waves are crashing at your door!

    Lived inland most of my life,

    to me getting to the beach was the only way to take a vacation. Now I live surrounded by it, and hope that never changes.

    I live by the sea. In fact at high tide the

    waves break just a few metres from my flat! Sometimes they are very noisy. Sometimes they are quiet like today.

    when it can be a bit wild and woolly out there. I love it!

    To me, the sea is like a person.

    .. like someone I’ve known a long time. It sounds crazy, I know, but when I swim in the sea I talk to it. I never feel alone when I’m out there. The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace... the...

    I would be in it, by it,

    on it, listening to it, smelling it, sailing on it, surfing on it, snorkelling through it, choosing my wardrobe by it all day long. I want to move beside it. I suspect I must have been a sailor's wife in a previous life.

    the waters are the beginning and end of all things on Earth.... However, man insists on being the superior thing on this planet...the sea was here long before him and he will very possibly be the cause of its disappearance...

    I love the sea, and feel very drawn to it.

    There is something about the sea and its character and contents that I have always found most enticing. I come from a historic seaport in England, and grew up hearing many tales of life at sea, and I have several friends and relatives who have spent a lot of time out on the...

    Doesn't the sound of the waves

    or the smell of the sea just calms you down? Whenever I need a place to find inner peace and calm the turmoil inside me, I walk around the beach take deep breaths and later collect some seashells and make a sandcastle.. I miss the feeling of the wet sand around my feet..

    I lived for most of my life in the UK.

    Miles from the sea, I used to go there for a holiday or to dive but not often. Now we live in Malta, it's such a small Island. The sea is just about visible from our roof, it takes 30 mins to walk to the sea! We are very lucky!

    I love the sea. I live far away,

    but when I visit, it's a cherished time. I've never felt such relaxation or felt so much magic around me than when I was there.

    La Mer...

    I could never live someplace far from the sea, some place really inland. I must have sea salt running in my veins. The sea calls me, and I weep every time I witness the glisten of the Mediterranean big blue from the air, when I return to its embrace for my first summer swim.

    People who live by the sea understand eternity.

    They copy the curves of the waves, their hearts beat with the tides, and the saltiness of their blood corresponds with the sea. They know that the house of flesh is only a sandcastle built on the shore, that skin breaks under the waves like sand under the soles of the first...

    I Wish I Lived By the Sea

    There is something calming yet frightening about the sea. It scares me that it is such a big open space that we know so little about. The idea of giant squids and other such animals live in it. Yet at the same time, it is one of the most peaceful, beautiful things to watch. Even...

    Until a few months ago I lived in a flat by the

    beach. The sea was magnificent. Constantly changing, filling the estuary, deserting the estuary as the tides came and went. Sometimes calm with gentle waves lapping the shore. And then from nowhere, such ferocity. Waves building. Waves crashing. Wind surfers delighted. Their...

    I would love to find a quiet,

    relaxing place by the sea in every part of the world. To sit and take in the hypnotic feeling of watching the waves come to shore. A place where you can just forget about everything and feel the freshness of your surroundings......

    The Threat to the Sea I Love

    Many of my favorite memories, and many that I am making today happen on or close to the sea.  That is why it disturbs me that so often I will tune to the news and find that some municipality along the river leading to the sea has had an "accident" in which tons of...

    I really do love the sea.

    I find it very calming, especially late at night. When I can't sleep (like tonight) I often drive to my nearest beach, where there is a secluded little cove that I'm surprised isn't visited by more people. This is where I come to gain clarity and calm my mind. The sound of...

    Mist rolling in over the sea on a grey morning.

    When the weather is bad, she's does her thing ebbing and flowing, never questioning. Turning it up, rolling it over, washing it away, only to scatter it stray & estranged like driftwood on the sands. GDuck
