This is a response to the weekly photo challenge
This week’s challenge asks what type of emotion the ocean evokes in me. The answer is “every emotion.” When surfing, the ocean is a place of excitement, thrill, adrenaline etc. When I’m body surfing or swimming, it’s a place of relaxation. When snorkeling or diving, it’s a place of wonder and discovery.
I’ve had scary moments, sad moments and wonderful moments in the ocean. The beach and ocean have always been a part of my life. My parents have taking me to the beach since before I could walk. As a kid, I spent daylight hour of summer on the beach for junior lifeguards.
Now that I live in Santa Barbara and have a full-time job, I don’t get to the beach as often as I would like to, but I try to surf as often as possible.
I hope you enjoy my photos!
