I came to find the ocean, but t’was the ocean who found me.
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
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
Visited Samyang Black Sand Beach 🌴🌊! The black sand comes from slowly eroded volcanic 🗻 materials (lava, basalt, etc.) Here it mixes in with the white ocean sand for a gorgeous combination! Super soft & warm too!
‘It is well with my soul 🎵’
14 . . . 15 the sea is green 🎤
*Remember that song 😎?
The view from the sea path up to the #skywalk. ❤️
