Though I grew up miles from any large bodies of water I now find myself attracted to the sea.
I couldn't care less if I actually go in the water and to be honest most of the time it's too cold for me or the waters not clear enough and I convince myself the seaweed is an ocean beast.
I also have zero interest in laying in the sun. I'm super keen on a mean tan but I get real bored real fast just sitting there. I can never find a comfortable position to read in and I wake up boiling hot if I fall asleep.
But aside from sea snakes and sandy siestas I love the beach. Maybe it's the air. The smell. The sound. It's so purely nature and there's nothing we can do to break the beast that is the sea.
