Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

I have a love/hate relationship with the ocean. This is kinda sad because I live on island. The sea is all around me.

I watched someone die earlier this year after he got into difficulty in the water. Since that happened, I have avoided getting into the water.

But despite that horrible memory, I love the ocean. I love being near it, hearing the calming crash of the waves and nothing beats a sunset or sunrise at sea. The photos in my gallery are from a hiking trip to the north-eastern corner of Trinidad, which is called Matelot.

    How very sad 🙁 But don’t avoid the water, just be careful! it’s too beautiful to let it make you unhappy

      I’m considering taking swimming lessons to deal with my fear. Thanks for your kind words.

    I understand your love – hate relationship. If you learn to swim it may help you overcome. While at the ocean I am quite content to sit, watch and listen to the waves, watch the sunrise or sunset but not enjoy the water. You live near the water so it would be nice if you could go in and enjoy. Hope you overcome!!
