Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

Sea. What kind of emotions does the sea or ocean make you feel? Do you remember the first time you went in the water? Had a wave crash on you? Felt the sand burn your feet? Do you feel more peaceful around water? Do you hate the beach? What’s the most interesting thing about the sea for you?Lots of questions, lots of interpretations. Show me the different sides of Sea with your contribution!In a new post specifically for this challenge, share a photo which means SEA to you!

Being a water baby, I love the water, the sea, the breeze and the wonderful nature.

Naturally to me, I see water as therapeutic with a sense of comfort and peace in a natural environment. This feeling is linked perhaps to being a water baby as with every human being conceived as a fetus growing in the womb filled with amniotic fluid, a clear odorless liquid, which surrounds and protects the baby in the uterus and provides a protective barrier from the outside environment.

I learned to swim in my teens and since then my hobby evolves around water, cruising, fishing, cannoeing, kayaking, swimming, spa, snokerling, scuba diving, whale watching, sun bathing on the beach, watch the sunset, beach walk, any and every activity that relates to water.

When I first migrated to New Zealand, I thought it was one of the ‘safest place on earth’.  Living in a bach in Omana Esplanade in Maraetai overlooking the Hauraki Gulf, life to me then was a breeze.  I love the natural beauty of New Zealand with its crystal clear water and sandy beaches.  I did a lot of fishing then and I had no fear of the water. I would jump into the water and have a little swim when our boat was anchored in deep water on our fishing trips. That was almost 10 years ago. Since then and more recently, we heard of sharks attack more and more, not necessarily in New Zealand and perhaps more so due to age, growing older and wiser, I may think twice now before ever doing that random jump again !

Is it worthwhile to risk your life doing something you love? I really wonder.

  6. When I was about five or six, I was playing in the water near the shore at a beach in Australia. A big wave swept me many, many, many metres away from shore and ever since then I have a fear of water. I dislike getting wet. However, I love going to the beach and looking at the ocean – so peaceful! 🙂
