the Pacific my peace

Tepre Pacificum, "peaceful sea", bestowed upon it by the Portugueseexplorer Ferdinand Magellan
The 'Pacific Ocean' encompasses approximately a third of the Earth's surface.
My soul heals at the ocean. I have lived no more than 2 blocks from or directly on the Pacific my whole life, aside from our 7 years in Texas which most was spent on a lake.
This beach is the first one I went to as an infant, when I was 5 my dad took me out on his surfboard here into the line up and I proudly stood on the front of that board fearless and free. That day changed my life, and instilled a deep love and need for the Pacific.
This is miss icy pops ride
this is fire snails ride
I was so proud and my brother was so sweet to take them
 it was a great day but a long walk back to the car...

It was a fabulous day and I love when life come full circle like this!

Have a wonderful day!

You're so lucky to have lived so close to the ocean all your life. And it's so sweet that you can share this with your children!
