O - Ocean
Living near to the ocean as I do, it can be easy to forget its wonder and beauty; to take it for granted. The ocean has been a backdrop to almost all of my life. When I was a kid, my sister I and spent hours exploring the shore and the tide pools on our summer trips to Saturna Island. And as an adult, I think first of the beach as a destination for a walk with the dogs. I even lived on the ocean for a while in my 20s when I spent a couple of years living on a sailboat.
The thing about the ocean is that it's always there--and it's always different. I can't really picture a life without the ocean nearby.
