A to Z Challenge: Oceans

Above is a picture of the Atlantic Ocean taken by me a couple (probably a few) of years ago. Location Neptune Beach, Florida if anyone is wondering. The Oceans change constantly. They wash away things. Things crumble into them. Things wash up from them. Oceans get moody. Still something about oceans that are a constant for me.

Maybe the ocean is a parallel or a refection of my life, my dreams, and my existence. Don't our lives change constantly? Doesn't life wash up surprises on us? Don't we loose things in this journey?

I don't live on the beach but it is a very short drive. Funny thing is the area I am at is known for the white sands. The white sands are due to the Appalachian Mountains that have been reduced to sand. Ironically I moved here from an area in the Appalachians.

Above Perdido Key on the Florida Alabama border I believe.

The Gulf being a little moody..

Above is the Gulf of Mexico from Pensacola Beach, Florida. Maybe I will just sail off into an ocean..

The view of Destin, Florida from a boat in the Gulf of Mexico...

Love the photo. I've always felt drawn to the ocean and shore. Nice "O" Mike.

Nice beach pics. I'm also a short drive from the ocean. But the Pacific.

The ocean is mesmerizing and loud. I've only been to the Gulf once but I found it more peaceful than the coast. Great pictures.

I love the ocean and I wish I lived closer to it. Destin, Fl is a neat little place, we went there a couple of years ago.

One of my most favorite (if not THE most favorite) things in the world. And also quite treacherous. Don't forget your life jacket! :)

Enjoyed the views! Sometimes I think I'd love to hop on a sailboat, skim the water and sail away. Then I think of how little that sailboat would be in the great big ocean and change my mind.
