Have you been to the ocean?
« on: August 26, 2013, 11:20:26 am »
As the title says, have you been to the ocean ever in your life? It came across to me as I found out one of my friend's has never been to the ocean in their life.

Not going to include places like the Great lakes as they don't really count I think.

For me, yes I have been to the beach as I live less than 200 meters from it and can hear it from my house.

Yessir! I live in Nova Scotia, and therefore right on the Atlantic Ocean. Now up here and Canada I almost never go to the beach, but I still do from time to time. If I'm in the ocean, I'm most likely at our second property in Florida. In fact, we were just there last week. I learned how to surf while I was there... DUUUDE :P. Lot's of fun for sure haha!

I'm right on the west coast so I would be shocked if I have never gone to the ocean.
Oooh I can put text in here :o *カタカタカタカタ*

I live about 10 minutes from the beach, it's a pretty decent beach too ^^
but with it being England and all, there's not many times we get beach weather :P

Last time I was in the UK in summer, it just rained all the time.

Well I technically live next to an estuary, which I think is about close enough. It's the Humberside estuary and it's situated here on the map of England and Wales:



The area isn't too bad. Some of the areas around its coast are quite peaceful and serene, and it even houses the Humber bridge, what is said to be the seventh largest suspension bridge in the world. It's just a shame I've never had the opportunity to sail along its waters in a boat. I haven't really had much of a chance of to explore the world's oceans. The only opportunities I can remember are several trips to the beaches, an opportunity sail on a trip to Cornwall and once travelling across the English channel to reach France.

I look at is as such a shame. The oceans are really something that fascinate me. They're mysterious, they're dangerous, they house so much biodiversity, have such an impact on the Earth and have so much historical and cultural significance. I dream of one day visiting many of the Earth's oceans. I'd do everything from swim, sail and even scuba dive in them.

Yes. I've traveled many places and have been in all four oceans.

I've also been on a few cruises. It's nice to step out onto a balcony at like 3AM and just admire the vast nothingness.

I've been to the beach quite a few times in my life, but I don't live next to it. This Summer I visited Seaside, Florida, which is the town where The Truman Show was filmed, if any of you have seen it. It's a really great place! Very peaceful, not full of noisy college kids and stupid surf shops. Everyone rides their bike to go somewhere.

I live in the Houston area, so I can easily go to Galveston Bay or anywhere along the Gulf of Mexico quite often. Usually my friends and I like to go hang out down there during convention season or when we go to Kemah :3

I went when I stayed in San Francisco for a bit... Nice but the salt burned my cuts and made me a little sick when I accidentally drank some... I prefer lake Michigan...

I lived in Florida for almost seven years of my life, which is a peninsula. We lived about forty minutes from the beach. Go two or three times every month just about, when the weather permitted.

I have been on the ocean in a very large ship, and only returned today. But opposite our house we have the sea, the English Channel. It's not much of a sea because its always a muddy green, but all the same the beaches are lovely. Just not sandy, but pebbly.
