    It Smells Terrible.

    By all means, it's a pretty unattractive smell, and it only ever gets worse and worse. So why do I like it?

    All and Out

    It's no doubt that the sea, the beach and the ocean in overall makes us feel all the sexy stuffs; bikinis and lots and lots of skin. But then, for me, it's like spreading your arms out wide and fall into the deep, just to find yourself drowned in the sky instead. I feel free and...

    Drawn Into

    The ocean is mesmerizing -- the beach, the horizon, the winter versus summer sand lines, the sound and rhythm as it pulses the coastline. But most of all is the smell and feel of the ocean in the air. It draws me and I need to be enrobed and encapsulated by the sea, no matter the...

    Can't Be Away From It For Too Long!

    I currently live one block from an inlet to the Gulf of Mexico. When the wind blows enough, I can smell the salt in the air when I open my front door. What a great feeling this experience has evoked in me since childhood and although I moved away in the past, just the thought of...

    Nobody likes going to the beach with me because I'm way out in the waves the entire time. No sun tanning. No sand castles. Just cold, deep, wonderful ocean.
