The Ocean

The Ocean has its silent caves,
Deep, quiet, and alone;
Though there be fury on the waves,
Beneath them there is none.

The awful spirits of the deep
Hold their communion there;
And there are those for whom we weep,
The young, the bright, the fair.

Calmly the wearied seamen rest
Beneath their own blue sea.
The ocean solitudes are blest,
For there is purity.

The earth has guilt, the earth has care,
Unquiet are its graves;
But peaceful sleep is ever there,
Beneath the dark blue waves.

‘The Ocean’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Sifting Sands

Sands blowing across the ocean coast in the strong spring winds. I used to think the desert sounded kind of boring – plain. Now I better understand how it might be truly be fascinating to watch.

Story Tale Bench

Stepped into a storybook scene along the trail of #Jeju southern coastline. 💕🌊🐚 Sitting together & watching the waves crash, the sand blow in hypnotizing patterns, the gulls swoop in for a landing . . . . it was absolutely breath-taking and soothing

The Hypnotizing Waves

My life during the coronavirus — stranded on the most beautiful island I’ve ever seen. It’s so soothing here!

The Waving Palms

I’m living on the set of every WW2 south pacific film of the 1950s and it’s beautiful. . . The movies don’t do the scenery justice!

Path to the ghostly kingdom

. . . Chinese wuxia often portrays the ghost or demon kingdom – living in the rocky, molten mountains of the underworld. This volcanic rock meadow flowing into the sea was filled with purple and white algae, seashells, and watery pools

Jeongbang Falls

Jeongbang Falls in Jeju Island! 🌈🗻 Apparently a Chinese envoy from centuries ago visited and wrote X was here’ on the rocks beside it 😂 It’s so beautiful guys 😭 I loved it!
