Sea. What kind of emotions does the sea or ocean make you feel? Do you remember the first time you went in the water? Had a wave crash on you? Felt the sand burn your feet? Do you feel more peaceful around water? Do you hate the beach? What’s the most interesting thing about the sea for you?

Today’s Weekly Photo Challenge asks us how we feel by the Sea. If you are a regular visitor you already know I spend as much time as possible by the water so for me the difficult part of this challenge was to select just a few photos. To narrow down my choices I decided to show you a fun, misty afternoon at Canon Beach on the Oregon Coast. This visit was in the late afternoon and the beach was surprisingly quiet. We had a great time splashing around in the shallow water pretending to surf the little waves and Ryan managed to slip a goofy expression or gesture into every picture we took as a family.
The sound of waves crashing on a beach and the smell of salt water are two of my favorite things in the world and these sensations are at their peak on the coast. Our Puget Sound area has its share of beautiful coastlines but they are protected from the full force of the west wind by the Olympic Peninsula and the impact of stepping to the edge of the continent can’t be beat.
Do I feel more peaceful at the beach? Yes!
