I've spent most of my life living in coastal towns - in the Pacific Northwest, Hampton Roads VA, and Naples Italy to name a few. The smell and the sound and the sight of the water is so ingrained in my psyche that I have a hard time imagining living happily without some bit of it nearby to wash away my worries.
This goes out to suttonhoo who's headed to my home state in a couple of days to say goodbye to a dear friend. Safe
