Eternity begins and ends with the ocean's tides.

I always dream of moving, making new adventures for my children and I, exploring new areas of this world- but I know in my heart I could never, ever, live too far from the ocean. I have always gone to the ocean when I need to think or reflect. I could not imagine not being able to just go sit by the water and smell the salt in the air when I need to.

Some recent pics from my visit to the Rockland Breakwater...






Since I was a kid I've always looked on the beach for "wishing rocks"- a rock that has a white line all around it- making a circle. I found this rock with a big THICK white band- I'm thinking I can make lots of wishes with it.


While following the path back to the car I spotted this little chipmunk- he was actually sitting just inches from my foot until I took my camera out then he scurried to this nearby rock- but still sat there for quite a while, didn't seem too scared of me.

So nice. I feel the same way about the ocean; I miss my Pacific, but the Atlantic isn't too bad- I can't imagine not living near an ocean.

Krista- I feel like a traitor saying this but I think the Pacific does win out :)
