Cool, Clear Water

I love the ocean.

I love walking on the beach on a stormy day and feeling it’s fury.

I love being in my boat, riding the waves, and when the bow comes down a big splash hits me in the face and I can taste the salt on my lips.

I love jumping over the side into the water when it’s just a tad chilly and for a moment it takes your breath away.

I love skimming along the surface when the water is calm, especially at high tide when the ocean feels like a big bubble.

I love the silence on a night like this when people sit on the beach in awe and don’t dare speak for fear of breaking the glass.

I love it when the water melts into the sky and it’s hard to tell where the horizon is.

British Columbia in summertime; if you can’t taste the salt, you’re not doing it right.
