Tag Archives: Atlantic Ocean



Son, and I had been living here for months, but didn’t get time to go visit the Atlantic Ocean which is practically at our door steps. The seagulls swoop, and fly through the area where we live. Finding time was a necessity to go look at the ocean.

Then March was coming to an end, and both Son, and I had not filed our tax returns. The time was running out like time, and tide waits for no man. Mine was easier, while Son had to go through a lot more, so he decided to get it done from Houston. I got mine done at the local H&R Block, although I had mislaid some documents, but the chap doing mine had to contact the Houston office on my behalf.

Anyway coming back to seeing the ocean, it did happen.Son asked, “Want to see the ocean?” It was right beside the H&R Block. I breathed the sea air, and looked at the horizon finally.

Daily Prompt: Witness Protection
When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers? Why?

Attempting anything scary requires courage from deep down inside within oneself. I don’t think anyone can help. The demons have to be faced on your own.

Our village home remains unused most of the time. Lizards creep inside. When you open a door, they rush inside. I scream and jump at the same time, while taking wild swings at them with a broom. To me, they are the most hateful creatures on God’s earth. Sorry animal lovers.

Bungee jumping doesn’t appeal to me. I would love to go kitesurfing. Whenever the opportunity comes my way, I am sure I will go for it. I would love to feel the wind in my hair, as I paraglide over the waves with a power kite to be propelled across the water.

I confess, I have never done it before. The first time I saw people kiteboarding was at Ocean City, eight years ago.

My daughter asked me if I wanted anything to do. That was the only thing that appealed to me.

There wasn’t any time, plus I didn’t have appropriate clothes for it.

We bought souvenirs from the shops, and had lunch. The children played in the waves for a little while, and then we returned to Baltimore.
