Do you like swimming in oceans?
I'm not totally against it. I have and probably will again, but it's certainly not my first choice.
It's not the salt water that bothers me; it's the creatures that scare me. The first time I tried really swimming in the ocean, I almost got stung by a jellyfish & in an effort to escape, I was bitten by a crab. I'll wade in the surf &swim in thepool
It's not bad. Got one directly across the street
I saw Jaws.
I'm a fish in the ocean. There's a sense of pure freedom. And it's a little scary.
During the summer the family and I are there almost every weekend.
It feels too dirty.
That's what she said
Couldn't help it or resist. Sometimes it's lodged pretty damn deep in that gutter xD
Every time I'm in the ocean something happens. Last month I got stung on the ass by a jelly fish in Hawaii. Before that I was stabbed by a stingray surfing. But I still love the lethal ocean.
I've only been in the ocean once so I have yet to experience a painful marine encounter o_o you literally made me lol with the jellyfish haha!! I hope your ass has recovered and looking fine ;) I concur though, I love the (dangerous) salty waters! ❤
Haha thanks. Flight home stunk for my booty! Remember when you're walking into the ocean to shuffle your feet in the sand. It's called the stingray shuffle. They can feel the vibrations of you walking.
Awh haha I bet! I'm terrified of being stung by one! But, I was unaware of that, good to know :O never been stung by one but I've gotten to pet stingrays they're pretty awesome :)
I've never swam in the ocean unfortunately, but I loveee swimming in Lake Michigan!!
I hope you get the opportunity to someday :) the ocean is stunning and fantastic, in my opinion. I wouldn't mind checking out the Great Lakes just to say I've been hehe!
Lake Michigan is amazing! I like swimming in crystal lake back there in MI too, not a Great Lake but still nice :)
Cold and dangerous. I did as a kid though.
I was raised on the beach. Its my happy place. My son is the same now. When he was 8 months he'd get a face full of wave, laugh & go back for more. Never seen a baby crawl as fast as him to the ocean. He's gonna be a surfer.
Yes, as long as it's a seldom seen shark area :-)
Same here!!! If I ever saw a shark I would totally FREAK
Yeah! As long as it isn't too cold (yes Northern Atlantic, I'm looking at you...) or too rough, it's great! Especially boogie boarding :)
Agreed I HATE swimming in cold water haha, I tried boogey boarding but couldn't really get the hang of it lol :/
Yeah it takes a little while to learn I guess. Skim boarding is impossible though...
I only tried it once so maybe I just need to practice more :) I'd like to learn how
What's skim boarding?
I've seen so many people eat sand on skim boards. Its hilarious!
I Do Not have the balance for all that
Tried it once
Skim boarding is when you have a really skinny board, you throw it across the sand when it's just barely wet and try to like jump on it or something and ride it on the shore...I don't really know how to haha but my brother's really good at it!
www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzhzphZ2NpY This is skimboarding. Every time I try it I end up falling flat on my face. Like Moo said, it's kinda entertaining to watch people try it :)
Ohhhh okay yeah I think I've seen that before just didn't know that was what it was called lol. I probably wouldn't be very successful at it xD I'm clumsy
Whether it's the Pacific, Atlantic, Caribbean, etc. I love them.
Hehe I've only been in the Atlantic but I hope I get to experience them all :)
❤ As long as the water doesn't try to drown me, I love any ocean. :D
Again i don't know how to swim but I have been to the beach quite a few times.
Aw that sucks you can't swim! But the beach is beautiful at least :)
I've only been in the ocean once but I loved it and can't wait to go again someday :))
Only once? :O Well, I guess if you don't live close that makes sense :)
Yeah it was in FL I wish I lived close by one so I could go more often :))
I was on a vacation to Disney world and Destin, and Destin was absolutely gorgeous ❤
Destin is the most beautiful ocean area that I have ever seen!!!
That whole Emerald Isle area is.
If you ever have the opportunity, learn to dive. I did a lot of diving in FL. It's fantastic. Really love the Keys.
