    Ship Watching

    Growing up on the prairies, the ocean is still a bit of a novelty for me. Now, I live within a ten minute walk of the ocean, and love walking along the beach, especially in winter when it is deserted. And as weird as it is, I love watching the big ships coming in to the Port...

    . . . But Never Recall

    having done so with a lover.  I have a beautiful view of the bay from my house but it's different when you are close to the water, sitting with the one you love and both of you enjoying the sight of either a sunrise or sunset. I was married for 20 years and...

    Mysterious Ocean

    the ocean has a special power, a power that humans can not comprehend, so unique it causes them to think while couples whisper birds dance endlessly. Silently, the ocean releases its power to heal all, Creating mysterious blues waves to the sandy floor, the process may take from...

    Ocean City Girl...

    I grew up near the ocean then moved to the desert but my heart longs for the rhythmic motion of the water...I was recently blessed with a trip to SoCal and the moment I was back on the beach my heart felt as if it had come home... There's nothing like it. I sat there for...

    I have been to the Ocean only twice in my life,

    and could enjoy it only once. But that week has brought memories I won't ever forget. Just to sit there, on the beach, with my feet burried in the sand, and to look at the blue empty but comforting vastness of that watery mirror, and to listen. Listen to the birds, listen to...

    The Ocean At Night Mid Atlantic

    From the first day I saw the ocean

    and the waves rolling onto the beach, I was hooked. I've always wanted to live near the ocean but I'm planted in the Midwest. As often as I can I try to play vacations at or near the beach, be it an ocean or even the gulf, I think the continuous waves are as mesmerizing as...

    We Are Only A Moment Here

    The word redundant's Latin meaning is wave, or wave sound. At one time the word captured the great beauty of the ocean's repeating itself.  The sound of the waves breaking on the shore is steady and calm.  I watch it and think, this is what the universe is.  While we turn...

    What I Miss Most....

    What I miss most about living in California, is going to the Redondo Pier, getting a churro and just watching the ocean.  Sooo calm and peaceful.  It's like the lull of the ocean just swept every care I had away. *sigh*

    Heading to the beach

    for a few days, I'm so excited and happy, it's been a while since I've been and it's been a long time since I relaxed. ^~^ I hope all goes well.

    I just got back from a trip to Florida

    and the Bahamas. I definitely got my fill of watching the ocean. While in Fla we stayed across the street from the ocean and got up in the morning to watch the sunrise. We cruised to the Bahamas, so I got my ocean fix whenever I wanted it.

    The ocean looks so beautil ful the sunset glow. I use to live right on the beach and the orange of the sky made the ocean so beautiful. The stars were great to. The waves crashing against the beach. Everything just singing it's lullaby to you.

    The Ocean

    I just love to watch the beautiful ocean. The way the waves begin and end on the beach. Such beauty it has to offer. So relaxing. One of my favorite things to do when I go to the beach is to sit and watch the ocean and its many movements!
