Sand and Sea... and Puget Sound.

I'm in Seattle. This means I go down to the water as often as I can.

Saturday and Sunday we went to several beaches and shot hundreds of photos. Water, rocks, driftwood, seagulls (sorry Kaci,) ferry boats, clouds and sky. We sifted our fingers through rocks and sand looking for perfect stones, shells, sea glass.

We're adventuring again today. North. Oak Harbor.

Prompt #19 - write about the rocks and the water, the seas and the sands, the first time you saw the ocean. or, if you've never been to the ocean, think of your favourite place and write about it.

Tammy and Scott - 
drop a note (with your mailing address) in a bottle and toss it in the sea. 
I'll collect it from the Puget Sound!
(or - send me a message on Facebook)

My Pond

Well, people 'round here
call them stock tanks -
watering holes when the rainfall
keeps the dirt wet.
Good enough. Mine.

Now, though, two men stand
and tell me face to face I can have
a sea - maybe even an ocean.
They're ready and willing to make it happen.
How can this be? All this - for me?
I love my pond when there's water.
The thought of a sea - or the ocean -
scares me. Intrigues me. Entices me.
Would I give up my pond for a sea?
For the ocean?

Yes. Closing my eyes, sticking to safe,
scares me more than the sea.
Or the ocean.
