The sea …. I have it in my heart and in my veins.
Been at sea more or less all my adult life – was 23 when I got my first seaman book, in May 1971.
I have passed the date line twice, I have sailed all the 7 seas, I have been seasick twice, I have sailed under the Southern Cross and Pole Star – and as an adult, have I always lived where the ocean has docked.
It’s really only one sea/ocean on our planet … it’s the same waters only that we have given it different names depending on where it docks.
Of all the oceans I been sailing on – still the Atlantic Ocean is my favorite …. Because it has so many faces and I love every one of them.
My favorite spot by the ocean is the beautiful little French town, Biarritz nearly on Spanish border … built on black rocks, a surfing paradise. My hideaway and my gem. Related post: 12 meters high waves … black rocks … rugby and campari & grapefruit juice
This photo is from Grand Plage in Biarittz. Once a month the high waves drowns the town’s seafront, been told that it has something to do with the full moon.
Waves up to 8-12 meters will hit the town and all beaches will disappear and the red flag tells us to stay away from the beach, because the sea is coming.
“The sea, once it casts its spell,
hold one in its net for wonder forever”
