“It’s a marvelous thing, the ocean. For some reason when two people sit together looking out at it, they stop caring whether they talk or stay silent. You never get tired of watching it. And no matter how rough the waves get, you’re never bothered by the noise the water makes by the commotion of the surface – it never seems too loud, or too wild.”

  1. Lovely and so true.

  2. oh! I love this. Lake Superior, instead of the ocean, for me.

  3. Love this quote. Reminds me of the Banana-mania binges I went on in my youth. _Kitchen_ is still one of my favorite reads.

  4. I had those binges too, Josephine!
