I STOOD in the Pacific Ocean

Just like that I stood on the shore of the Pacific Ocean.

My family went on a two week road trip out West ending our trip in Los Angeles. L.A. has so many beautiful beaches all along the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The second night in the city we visited Santa Monica Beach. It was dark and the night was dedicated to rides for the kids so I couldn’t stand on the beach. The next day we planned to be total beach bums and hang out at Manhattan Beach all day until dinner. 

I, on the other hand, planned to accomplish number 17 on my #40before40 list — STAND IN THE OCEAN.  


There really isn’t a really deep or thought provoking reason why I placed standing on the ocean on my list. I just wanted to continue on my journey of getting comfortable with water. Surrendering to be water and nature’s beauty is thought provoking enough.
