a childhood by the water shapes your character for the rest of your life.

accustomed to the sound of lapping tides and crashing waves, one is ignorant to their significance. it is only after returning to the seaside after a bout of residing in landlocked locales that one understands. . . .

the seaweed smell, the incessant fog, the constant rain . . . the sparkling surface, the crisp breeze, the gliding sailboats

    I so agree! We coastal kids take the ocean (and forest) for granted and only until a few years are spent land locked in the big city can you fully appreciate its beauty 😊
