    • Thanks Julie… makes me want to plunge into our local ocean – but until the temps warm up – the Epsom Salt baths will substitute!
      I’m glad you enjoyed!

    The sea is nature’s cure for anything – ailments, loneliness, hunger, thirst, adventure.

    • Yes Ivy- and until we can find ourselves submerged in the sea…. Epsom Salts will have to do!!! 🙂

  4. Robyn, I’m always so inspired by your photos coupled with your interesting and thought-provoking titles. This one in particular prompted me to see the “peace” of a cure in the calm tide, neighbored by the rough, choppy waves of the tumultuous time spent hoping and wishing for the calm of the cure. Very nice! Hope you have a great weekend!

    • ooo… ktlee – love your interpretations. You have a great sense of poetry in your comments always – and this one especially. I do see the contrast you describe — the peace of the calm tide (cure) vs rough of the waves (struggle). Thank you so much for sharing this, and am touched that the photos/titles can inspire at times!! Hope you are having a great weekend as well:)

  6. Thanks so much eremophila! Yes – resonates here too. Waiting for some warm weather to soak for days in the sea!

  8. INCREDIBLE! Second time in two days I have come across this quote! It inspired this: A Serendipity in the Sea. Excellent photo to accompany it! ~Regards, Dan
