It's So Healthy For You.

I lived in Florida for many years. I was 10 minutes from the water. It smells so  peaceful..salty and the fish .Yep I liked that fishy thing going on. Reminded me of where I was.  I liked going to the gigantic pier to see folks fishing. I saw Sea turtles and sting rays, all sorts of birds and fish. You never know what will be out there. I was in Hurricane Andrew. It was massively dangerous at the beach.Not a great place to live if storms and flooding, frighten you.  Now beach homes are impossible to afford..the insurance is astronomical. I do miss it with all my heart.

hi, I know what you mean..after leaving Florida I missed it so much. Now I hope to return someday. Amazing how dfferent the ocean waters are..Atlantic vs the Pacific! Goog luck on your dream.

I would also love to live by the sea. And I am hoping one day when the kids are older that I can move close to the ocean. A dream that I hope will come true someday

I would love to live by the water. I love the fishy smell too. Funny how I live as far from that environment as possible in landlocked Alberta.

yep, stay out of the water. The ocean is not easy ..even a fine swimmer can get in trouble. I walked the beach and what a work out! Walking in sand kills your legs.it's peaceful to sit and just look at the waves..people watching OMG..too funny! Salt water is good for your skin and breathing problems...so I'm told.

I would love to live by the sea but I have one problem. I don't know how to swim.
