First Oceanic Steps

First Oceanic Steps

Okay, I know I look like a dork in my long pants at the beach — it got better when they were rolled up past my knees — but the trip to the ocean was a bit impromptu; I do, in fact, have shorts and swim trunks, I just didn’t have them on me at the time.

But the picture is in fact of my first steps into ocean waters. And those waters were quite cold, at least for the first several minutes.

Details: It was the Atlantic Ocean (Gulf of Mexico) at Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island.

  1. The OCEAN IS AMAZING!! But are you in Wal-Mart uniform and where are your shorts and why are you blogging on vacation?
