Weekly photo challenge: Sea

The Weekly photo challenge is 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?

I love going to the ocean. The wind blowing across your skin. The sound of the waves, crashing into the sand. It is hypnotic and calming.

I like to walk in the sand and just where the sand is wet and glistens, you can find shark teeth, they glisten like black shiny objects. They are hard to find, but I can spend hours looking for them.

We like to climb over the rocks to look for shells. The rocks gets covered when the tide comes in.



I have gone into the water with a boogie board, and rode a wave into the beach, but then the wave pushed me under and it was powerful and full of sand and holds you under. I didn’t like that feeling so I have not done it again.
After watching shark week on TV, sharks come in close to the beach. I am kind of afraid of getting a bite out of my leg by a shark. After seeing pictures of all the people that got bit, I don’t think I will go into the water. I will just walk along the edge, looking for shark teeth and shells.

The beach (Edisto Island, South Carolina)

The previous post did not show sand.  The rocks were put there to block the waves.  The tide came in high.  The water would come up to the fence and sometime over it. 

Walking the beach makes your feet smooth.  The water was warm.  The sound of the waves is soothing.  Although when the tide came in high and the waves were big, it frightened me.  The waves are powerful.  They said there were rip tides and it was erroding the beach.  After the high tide my son found this.  It is a Horseshoe Crab, empty on the inside, laying on the beach.

You can’t tell the size of it.  Here is my son holding it up.

He wanted to take it home, but it still had muscle and tissue on the inside holding it together and it was starting to smell.  I didn’t take it home. 

My son and hubby were out in the water using their boogy boards.  They rode the wave a couple of times and then a big wave hit them and pushed them around under the water.  They didn’t go out after than.  My son said “The wave cleaned out my ear wax from my ear.”

I like how the sand looks all glossy and shiny when it is wet.  That is also the best place to spot sharks teeth, because they shine when they are wet.  

Here is the picture of the shark teeth.  They are mostly small, they look larger in the picture, than they are.   The top one on the left is the biggest one I found.
