The first time I saw the ocean was when I visited my sister in
Philadelphia and we went to the Jersey shore.  The ocean was
so magnificent, and I'd never seen it. I was hooked. I have loved
being near the ocean since that time, and have in some ways
worked with my husband to design our life around it.  We have a
rustic little school house near Pugwash, Nova Scotia, and when we are
there we go to our favourite beach every day, rain or shine.
This year with the pandemic shutting down borders, and making
long distance travel questionable, we may not get there.

All I know is that our oceans are so beautiful. The mesmerizing sound
of the waves is addictive and calming. And there are so many fascinating
creatures living on the beach and in the water.

 We need to save our oceans from the plastic onslaught we've
been subjecting them to. The wonderful woman in this painting
is working hard on making this a better world.  Thank you
