I took this snap on the Na Pali coast last summer, and it is still one of the most spectacular places I have ever been too (the colours are actually that vibrant)📍K A U A I , H I 🌎#kauai#hawaii#northpacific
Having so much fun with @plantriotic in LA. We took both the dogs to the beach, for quite possibly their first time ever!!!! Koda did excellent even though he is afraid of water. He doesn't quite have down the swimming technique, he more or less just jumps and awkwardly floats 😂 It was also interesting to make it back the the ocean we left in Alaska. I've been feeling this longing for the coast for a month or so now, since it's part of my home, and to finally be by one cut down a little on my homesickness. #cockerspaniel#veganvanlife#beach#northpacific#homesick

Irina, a worker at the local fish processing factory 'Narody Severa', during a picnic on Oktyabrsky beach, which is located on the Russian eastern Kamchatka Peninsula. On stormy days the factory closes and many of the workers enjoy the free time at the beach having picnics and drinking vodka.
Since the 1970s the sea has been claiming the land, destroying part of Oktyabrsky settlement. Almost three entire streets have disappeared under water and the remains of former apartment buildings are slowly being worn away by the waves. Locals and climate experts believe global warming is responsible, as the mild weather melts the sea ice which once protected the shores of Oktyabrskiy from strong autumn and winter storms.

Have you ever thought about the age of the sea …? A massive layer of water in the North Pacific is believed to be 2,000 years old. The seafloor there is shaped in such a way that very deep waters get trapped in a cycle, never reaching higher than about 1.5 miles from the surface, so therefore never evaporates. The oceans are as mysterious as deep space

At 10,000 feet, the world's largest dormant volcano is pockmarked by volcanic cinder cones and has hosted both Apollo astronauts training for lunar experiences, and an American national park's highest number of endangered species, such as silversword succulents, which can live up to half a century.
Uniquely carved by both Waimea River's extreme rainfall from Mount Wai'ale'ale, and a catastrophic collapse of an exploding volcano which first created Hawaii's oldest major island, this multihued abyss is often called Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
