    Love

    I have always loved the ocean. I want to live near the ocean but I dont forsee that happening. If I did I would have to be a bum because i would never go to work!

    I Never Have

    I love the smell and sounds of it and the way it makes the air feel.  I love the cry of the gulls overhead, squishy sand between my toes and salt spray.  I have never lived near the ocean, but have visited our West Coast many times.  I think I would like to...

     That would be an amazing sight and sound to wake up to every morning. Maybe someday I'll move to Hawaii or the Dominican.

    Drawn To It

    It's no secret by now,that humans,at least most,of us,seem drawn to water quite naturally.Wether it's because we're largely made up of the stuff,or what,I don't know,but there does seem to be some magnetic force that draws us to water. It might be the ocean,a lake, a river,or...

    Used to

    I used to live in Homer, AK which is a coastal town. Then I moved to MI. I hated it so I migrated over to Oregon. I don't live near the ocean but plan on moving again one of these days.

    Out of the Way!

    I would love to live near the ocean,but sadly,I'm as far away from that as it gets!The good thing is that in about 15 years,I'm going to move to Japan.That's an island,so I'm going to try to get a beach condo or a beach house or something near the beach.

    I Do And I Don't Even Try

    My life has inadvertently been involved with the sea. My natural mother was a young trawlerman's widow from Lossiemouth, by the sea, her husband had been killed I think, possibly drowned. My natural dad was at the RAF base. He may have been the cleaner for all I know, but an RAF...

    Dreaming About Warmer Climate...

    No, I'm not thinking about living on a tropical island or anything like that. That would be too hot for a northern girl like me. I would love to live nearer to the Arctic ocean! It's so beautiful there! It's a harsh environment, but stunningly breathtaking at the same time. And...

    Sandy Feet

    Then I could run down to it every morning and wade into it while the sun is still rising. Which, I reckon, would be pretty lovely and a great way to start the day. Nothing better than getting sandy feet before your breakfast.

    Really

    I live in the Netherlands, and quite close to the sea. So I can imagine if you wonder why I'm part of this group. But the sea here in Holland is awful. It's always cold here, and the water is brown and dirty and really gross. We just don't have a beautiful seaside. I go on...

    Dreams

    I would love to live near the ocean. Sure, it would have its drawbacks: I would be vulnerable to natural disasters on the ocean. But then I think about the other side of the coin: The sound of the waves, the knowledge that I can walk to paradise, the fact that I'm residing in the...

    I'd be the happiest person ever

    if I lived near the ocean! It's so peaceful! This is my dream and if this doesn't happen until I retire I'd be totally fine with that!

    I Already Do

    I actually do live like a 20 or 30 minute drive from the ocean, but I'd love to live even closer; within a couple minutes drive, even, maybe...though sometimes it's smelly down there...I do know some people who live very close and they never seem to have problems with that, so it...

    I Used to :(

    Then I had to move!! I miss the ocean so much, I never thought I would miss it like I do, I feel so clostraphobic without it. I used to spend a lot of time at the beach on my own, just sitting there watching the waves...it didn't matter what the weather was like it always used to...

    I Can't Handle Being Away From the Sea

    I have always lived in an area that was at least an extension of the ocean. Except for now, and I kinda hate it.

    So Nice

    I would be so happy if I lived within 4 hours of a beach! I don't even care about living ocean side (though that would be nice!) I love swimming in the ocean. My favorite vacations have been Florida and S Carolina because I got to be a beach bum for a few days.

    Sound Of Waves And The Feel Of The Mist

     I remember in my teens going with my Mom and her friends and sleeping on the beach and it was sandy and yuck the next morning but the sound and feel of the mist was amazing if we had slept in a tent to help with the sand I think it would have been one of the best nights...

    Waking Up to the Waves

    I want to wake up and look outside my window in mornings and see the ocean come in to greet me.  At night, last thing, walking out of the door, sitting on the sand and watching the moonlight reflect on the surface of the ocean. I want to see the sun's relection of gold on...
