I love being near the ocean but I don't love going in it or sitting on the beach. Walking in the sand is great, though. I know; I'm weird. LOL
Kelley, you and I must have been sisters in a past life ( ): I'm the exact same way. Walking in the ankle deep water is about as far as I go, although sometimes I'll go farther out and body surf.
I honestly think one of the reasons my depression and anxiety have been so bad lately is that I have not been near the ocean in a few years. Just being on the beach is so soothing. That's why my signature line used to read "A beach is a place where a man can feel / he's the only soul in the world that's real," which is a quote from the Who's song Bell Boy on Quadrophenia.
