Open Thread: Ocean

Hosted by a breaking wave
It's that time of year here in Florida, where the air is warm enough to feel like beach weather... but I know perfectly well that the water hasn't gotten the memo yet.

Sigh.  A few more months of looking at pictures like these and wishing.

I love the ocean.  I love swimming out so far I can't touch the bottom anymore and just floating on my back, peaceful, before catching a passing wave to get a boost back towards shore.  (And then hearing the frantic shouts of my husband, who hates that I like to swim out that far.)  I love walking on the shore as the tide hungrily pulls the sand from under my feet, splashing in the little foamy bubbles.

But it is still March, even though it doesn't feel like it, and I don't actually feel like freezing my feet off :P

Open thread!  Do you live near the ocean, and if not, have you been?  What do you like best about it?  Do you not like the ocean, and if not, why not?  ("Because Lovecraft" is a perfectly valid reason, btw!)  What are some good or bad experiences you've had on the beach?

Monday Reminder!  While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those!  These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you!  (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)  

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
