Oceans are welcome, too.
I love those big, huge bodies of water. Cresting waves, salty taste and feel, unimaginable vastness. Wjat more could you want? Whenever I’m someplace I haven’t been before, and they have a nice coastline, I get the urge to go for a swim. Nothing like throwing your life into one of nature’s most brutal forces, right?
Though I’m not much of a swimmer I definitely enjoy moving with or against the waves, feel the tides pulling and pushing, all that great stuff. And of course the near-coast wildlife the water brings is always nice too. Crabs, starfish, small anemones.
Beaches are great too, as long as they are sandy and clean, but that’s a different topic.
