World Ocean Day

Taking our own picture while standing in the ocean at Crescent Beach!
Still in the water, wind blown hair!
A Block up from Crescent Beach standing in front of glorious home!
Laura in the water on World Ocean Day

Yesterday June, 8th 2007 was World Ocean Day! Laura, Chris and I decided to visit both local beaches, White Rock where we had coffee in the morning, then Crescent a few hours later. We dipped our toes in the Ocean and walked all along the beach…it was almost surreal.

The amazing thing about an untouched beach is the timeless feel about it, for a moment I felt like it was the nineteen sixties again. We put daisies in our hair, Laura and I both instantly thought of the song, “San Francisco” and the line “If you’re going to San Francisco be sure to wear flowers in your hair! Since we all have a passion to be near the ocean we decided to make visiting the ocean on World Ocean day our new tradition.
The day ended with a little over dose of vitamin D which I’m sure will turn into a lovely tan. None of us expected the day to unfold the spectacular way it did. Sometimes it pays to just live in the moment.
