Answer for question 4424.

When was the last time you saw an ocean? Which one was it and why were you there? If you've never been to the ocean, is it on your list of things to see?

when? Maybe 16 years ago. The North Pacific Ocean. We went to visit relatives and friends in Western Washington and Oregon. I was born about four miles from Puget Sound, an arm of the Pacific and spend my first twenty years on or near its eastern shore. Then i moved inland and never went back except for a very occasional brief visit. But i loved it, its in my blood, as they say. I cruised its shore in small boats. Oddly, i was never able to learn to swim.

How odd about the swimming! Did you try and fail?

Many times, from early childhood to well into middle age and including formal instruction and a couple of near drownings.

The last time i tried swimming was when my younger daughter was learned. I must have been about 40+ and, if memory serves, still pretty much skin and bones.
