"I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming...
suddenly you find - at the age of 50, say -

that a whole new life has opened
before you."

The Ocean...

- John F. Kennedy, 1962
I absolutely love the ocean and beach - always have - since a young girl. As a result, my love of seashells developed while I was a young girl as well. My favorite times have always taken place while I have been around the ocean and beach. To me, all of the sights and sounds are so soothing and relaxing. I don’t even care how hot it gets or how hard the sun is beating down on me - I just love it!

I guess that is why it is upsetting me to see what is taking place in the Gulf of Mexico right now with the BP oil spill. I cannot stand to see the ecological damage that is taking place. It breaks my heart. I truly hope that the area will be able to be restored.

I do not want to get political, so that is all I am going to say on this subject!

Here's to my fellow WaterBabes ~ Cheers!!


  1. I can smell the salt air just looking at your picture. I enjoy your writing style. So personable...like you were a friend over meeting for tea. Keep up the excellend work!

    Looking forward to your next...post...


  2. The oil spill not only breaks my heart, it makes me angry as #@%& Hopefully, someday we will all wake up and realize we need to protect our ocean and rivers. I live on the Pacific Ocean and never tire of sitting and watching the waves.

  3. I too am brokenhearted by what is happening.
