I love the beach for many reasons.
I love the ocean, it's powerful and almost scary, but incredibly beautiful all at the same time.
I first remember seeing the ocean when I was 15. My sister lived on The Presidio (when it was still an Army base). She lived in base housing and had a big picture window overlooking the ocean. My family drove out from Oklahoma and I spent hours on the beach picking up seaglass and continually being amazed that I could see the Golden Gate Bridge. (previously only viewed on television it didn't seem like something that existed in real life to me) A few years ago we went back to that same beach and I was amazed that it was still the same (except no seaglass - I guess that's a good thing). It's probably the only place I've ever visited that didn't change after 30 years. I'm thankful for the preservation of this piece of property. I found a piece of abalone shell when I visited this beach in 1978, about 7 years ago I had it wire wrapped to make a pendant. The wire wrap worked perfectly because I didn't want to alter it from it's original state.

The next time I visited the ocean was much different - Jamaica, man! My husband and I spent a few days in an island paradise and I was amazed that the ocean could be so blue and so crystal clear. And so began my love affair with the Caribbean Sea. We've traveled to Maui, the Mayan Riviera, Key West, Belize, Cape Cod, Alabama and Florida. I can never get enough beach time. I am never ready to come home.
Here are a few of the reasons I love the ocean and the beach!
