When it comes to what I’ve experienced in the ocean, there are no words I can use other than magnificent. First day we went out to the ocean, it was after a hike that I might say, really made my legs burn. When I was told we were allowed to enter the giant salt pool, I was a little weary at first, but the moment I entered I was off the walls.
Last I had seen of the ocean was about 9 years ago at my aunts wedding in Hawaii, so my view of it was mostly from news headlines about all the horrible things that are happening in it and to it. When I saw all the other students entering the water, I thought to myself, “what the heck, what’s the worst that could happen.” And boy do I tell you, I had the time of my life. I spent that entire first day with Duncan getting pummeled by waves and loving every second of it. Sure at one point I got a little scrape on my side but it gives me good story to tell.
You see reader of this magnificent blog post, that’s the beauty in the terrifying things. Something like the ocean may be seen as a “death hole”, but once you experience the simpler side of the vast body of water; you begin to appreciate the glistening blue waves, the reflection of the sun on its perfect surface. The ocean won’t always be the same as it is now, heck it’s not even the same as it was 5 years ago, so we all need to see the ocean as it is, our little paradise.
