Today's Top Five List


Introduction:

I love the ocean. I have lived on the west coast of the U.S. I have lived in Hawaii. I have lived in the Netherlands on the cold North Sea. I live in the desert over 1000 miles from the sea, but it is in my blood. These are the reasons I love the ocean.

Vacation

While I have lived a good part of my life near the ocean on an island and two different continents, usually when I spend time at the coast now it is on a family vacation. It is free time, outdoors and in a great setting.

Solitude

In Hawaii and especially on the rugged Oregon coast I can always find a quite, nearly deserted beach to walk and be alone with my thoughts.

Health

When I am on the coast the air is fresh and clean coming off the sea. I take time to go on long walks or jog more often than I do otherwise. The ocean rolling endlessly before me is a great backdrop than makes exercise something pleasant.

Recreation

I love to fish, swim, sail or even just sit back and fly a kite in an ocean breeze. The ocean is a great spot for outdoor recreation.

Adventure

The sea has always been adventure from boyhood to now. I love to explore the coast. I love exotic beaches discovered by me for the first time. I love old Thor Heyerdahl non fiction books. I love a good Clive Cussler novel. Boyhood pirate and discoverer books were something I couldn't put down.The ocean is always an adventure.

    I would have really liked to meet you and your family when you visited my state along the Pacific Ocean. Great list and very true for me too.

    My energy resonates with yours about the ocean. While on a cruise, I was blessed to see that place of blueness where the ocean and sky meet. Enjoyed reading your thoughts. HI5

    I love the breeze and the scent of the sea. I love the crashing of the waves. I could sit for hours on the beach...and have! But I prefer the gulf for swimming.

    There is something so relaxing about watching the endless waves and walking on a deserted beach.

    Sounds nice! I love the lakes and I'm sure I would love the ocean, too. :)

    The ocean has all these things. That's why most of the US population lives on the coasts. We need more coast for the rest of us.

    I feel the same way about the beach, the ocean, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and I do miss the coast ..
