A place of solitude

I really do love the ocean !! The smells, the colors, the sound...everything.

It is such a peaceful place to sit and contemplate life. I like to go when there is no one else there , so I tend to stay away during busy summer days.
Or, I go there when I am stressed and just watch the waves, and listen to them crash on the shore.

There is something mysterious about it. I often wonder about what lies past the horizon. What are people across the Atlantic doing as I sit here ?
I also have great respect for the ocean. It can be beautiful, but so powerful.

I thank God that I live so close to the water. I can't image living away from it !
