Lost At Sea

The sea.

The deep blue sea.

Continuing with the Abandoned post from last week,
let's have a look at what use to sail the ocean blue.

 Mysteries of the ocean floor

 and all things in-between.

One of the most famous shipwrecks is the Titanic.
Look how huge these propellers are.

On the docks before leaving Belfast.

Can you image being in the water and those monsters come rising out of the water?

We all respect the power of the sea.

It can be a tyrant.  Aggressive.  And has been known to not give up its dead.
Never underestimate it.

But yet somehow, we all seemed to be drawn to it.

Mesmerized by its beauty, spellbound by its sounds.  It calls our souls.

The beasts of the sea, roam some 6000 feet deep.

 Or closer.

One marine web-site I follow very closely is OCEARCH
They have managed to tag several sharks and are able to track them.
One particular shark that is very close to home is hovering around Martha's Vineyard.
I follow them on Twitter and get up-to-date info.
(This is not a paid endorsement - just wanted to share this)

The USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor.
 A haunting reminder of what happened December 7, 1941

But the sea is also a place to enjoy, a place to relax, a place to play.

Lost at sea or lost to the sea.

  1. Such a coincidence your post about water and sea..Today we commemorate our flood disaster in 1953, where 1800 people lost their lives, because our dykes broke down...

  2. Reminds me of this poem:, The Sea by Barry Cornwall. Oh the sea! X

  3. Living on the Gulf of Mexico, I love the waves and the calming sound of the Gulf! Thanks for that link, I can't wait to go look!

  4. Diane,
    Love nature, mountains and the sea-this post is just great!


  5. I did a Charles Wysocki painting puzzle a few years ago that looked amazingly like your top photo!

  6. Such a great post! And I love those pictures!

  7. Wonderful post. I could never live far from the ocean for this exact reason...the ocean calms my restless soul...
