Love it! I lose myself in the ocean

Sitting by the sea is my favorite place to be. 😎

There’s nothing more relaxing than the ocean. Love the advice. 🙂

That’s precisely why I live at the Coast.

Me too! 😎

5. Andra Watkins - May 22, 2012

Just staring at the water can take years off my life. 🙂

nrhatch - May 22, 2012

I feel the same. A walk in the waves washes away the cares of the world.

6. suzicate - May 22, 2012

Avoid pier pressure -love it!

nrhatch - May 22, 2012

That ocean sure has a way with words . . . and waves. 🙂

7. winsomebella - May 22, 2012

I have Advice from a Tree but the ocean is very wise too 🙂

Oh, I bet the Tree gives great advice too! Nature nurtures.

10. Three Well Beings - May 22, 2012

This was a wonderful little break in my day! I love it…a meditation from the sea. Debra

nrhatch - May 22, 2012

That’s what I thought . . . a sea-sonal interlude. 😀

11. sufilight - May 22, 2012

Haha, I shore enjoyed this! No pier pressure, just a delight in reading this. Thanks for the smiles! 🙂

nrhatch - May 22, 2012

12. Barefoot Baroness - May 22, 2012

Ocean full of wisdom. How wonderfully perfect. I really am smitten with those pillows. Are they yours? Do you have any info on them” My best bud’s sand casrle needs those.

err. so sorry I got carried away on a wave~~~~~

Beautiful post~

nrhatch - May 22, 2012

Glad you enjoyed. Just click on the National Wildlife link at the bottom of the post and you’ll be whisked to the Ocean Pillow page. 😀

Barefoot Baroness - May 23, 2012

Thanks so much, Going to splurge and buy me one too. I have a thing for pillows, and the coast. Perfect combo. Thanks so much again for sharing.

nrhatch - May 23, 2012

Enjoy them, barefoot baroness. Be well! 🙂

13. jannatwrites - May 23, 2012

Good advice. Those piers do exert lots of pressure, so I’ll be sure to avoid them 🙂

nrhatch - May 23, 2012

I blame it on the pilings. They often lead the boards astray. 😉

14. Booksphotographsandartwork - May 23, 2012

I love those pillows!

nrhatch - May 23, 2012

How clever!

Life’s a Beach . . . make waves! 😀

16. Julie - May 23, 2012

Fantastic!

nrhatch - May 23, 2012

Thanks, Julie. Looks like you had a great time in Honesdale, PA last week. Before we moved to Maryland, we considered Honesdale for “our next address” after a four acre parcel in the woods, complete with log cabin and pond, caught our eye.

17. kateshrewsday - May 23, 2012

Yes, Nancy, that is better 🙂 I can almost hear the crash of the waves on the shore. Thank you.

nrhatch - May 23, 2012

We went to the beach this evening for our 2 mile walk . . . just gorgeous. 😎

18. Tokeloshe - May 23, 2012

Well done !
I never get tired of those blue waters and white sands 😉
Enjoy!

nrhatch - May 23, 2012

We went to the Grand Opening of Coquino Cafe tonight . . . and then walked two miles along the beach. We caught sight of an Osprey eating dinner (a fish) on high (in a tree).

19. bluebee - May 24, 2012

Clever 🙂 The sea, whether calm, or wild and stormy, is mesmerizing

nrhatch - May 24, 2012

There are sea folks and mountain folks. I’m a sea folk . . . for shore. 😎

20. Team Oyeniyi - May 24, 2012

I’d swap that scene for my cold right now……

nrhatch - May 24, 2012

I get that . . . totally. Warm weather suits me too.

21. souldipper - May 24, 2012

Totally clever. Kudos to the person who created the phrases. All worth herring so as to not clam up.

Oh…don’t get me started! 😀

nrhatch - May 24, 2012

Bwahaha! Shore looks like you’re enjoying your read herrings.

souldipper - May 24, 2012

Yah, but it’s been a bit like trying to paint orange roughy purple. Or push a blowfish through a funnel. An old crab on a pirate ship tried to bait me to sail off, but I smelt something fishy. Rather than flounder, I hung on to my sole and let it tug me right past schools of sharks, pirates and piranha. Mahi mahi how those Scots tried to hook my heart and salmon me away. My survival is a mackerel.

Well…see for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta-Z_psXODw

nrhatch - May 24, 2012

Aargh, matey! A pirate’s life for me. Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum! 😛

22. Samyak - May 26, 2012

Beautiful!

after reading these lines, this is what came to me, quite spontaneously:

This blue Sky
my roof
Those horizons
Realms of my space

These are no waves,
They are my arms.
Lose your self
In this embrace.

Shall evolve them further and post on my blog. Meanwhile, they belong here in this comments section.

Cheers,
Samyak

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Lovely, Samyak! Thanks for sharing.
