Monday Quote: The Sea Cleanses My Soul

“The sound and smell of the sea cleanses my soul.”

It’s 100 degrees in Philadelphia right now, and all I can think about is the cool, cool ocean. In temperatures like this, I feel like the heat has a way of fogging up my mind. It’s so discouraging to think about any outdoor activity, except swimming in some water. This quote helps me forget about the heat for a minute, and I imagine myself standing on the shoreline with my feet sinking in the sand and the cool breeze on my face, feeling clear-headed once again.

The ocean just has that way of making me feel right, relaxed and comfortable.

This is so beautiful. I’m the same way, the ocean is so cleansing for me, I love it.

I can totally relate. It has been SUER steamy here in Chicago.

Grew up on the East Coast, and couldn’t leave for college. Love being able to drive to the beach whenever I want to, or need to, it’s so relaxing!

Ahhh…. it totally does!! Spent yesterday at the beach and I’m just wishing I was back there now!
