Beach Blanket Biiingooo...: MomDot's SmallTalk Six On Saturdays

Those MomDotters are at it again...Small talk Six! On Saturdays.

Today’s topic is
6 things you love or hate about the ocean" You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc . . .


Well since I am a Pisces, I am naturally drawn to water...or so they tell me. I think I just like to swim, and float weightlessly, in soothing water. But, hey, who am I to judge? It's hot a hell where I live {Summer comes early in my neck of the woods} and I desperately want my own pool. Floating aimlessly in some nice cool water sounds really good right about now.

1) I love the sound of the waves and the rhythm they produce. It is so calming.

2) I love the smell of the crisp ocean air. It makes me feel as if I can breathe easier.

3) I love finding sea shells with my daughter.

4) I love watching my daughter discover the beach. She is just fascinated with everything about it. Last Summer when we took her there for the second time in her whole life, she thought she could make the waves stop coming up so high by telling them to stop. It was priceless.

5) I love that no matter what beach I am at, I am visiting my Dad. {We scattered his ashes in the Pacific Ocean}

6) I hate that in order to go to the beach, I must slather myself and my daughter in SPF 1million, lest we blister our pasty, blindness inducing pristine, lily white skin and take on the color of cooked lobsters. {I also hate the wind and the seagulls that will come right into your bag and take your food. They are nasty little suckers...}
