home ocean


“The Pacific is my home ocean; I knew it first, grew up on its shore, collected marine animals along the coast. I know its moods, its color, its nature. It was very far inland that I caught the first smell of the Pacific. When one has been long at sea, the smell of land reaches far out to greet one. And the same is true when one has been long inland.”
~ John Steinbeck

  1. I know that quote to be true except the Alantic is my ocean. The only difference is in the coast line.
    You captured s beautiful vista to go with Steinbecks quote. Loved all his books.
    Your trip really was so beautiful.

  2. You never might have guessed, but it’s my favorite ocean! So glad you had a chance to visit it.

  3. I love how the light makes everything look like a dream. Perfect quote too – Steinbeck is one of my all-time favorite authors.

  4. Such lovely golden light shining on the trees and cliff….your image is so beautifully paired with Steinbeck’s quote.
