One of the wonderful things about growing up in Vancouver, British Columbia, was that I had easy access to the ocean. Every summer my parents would take me to the beach to swim in the ocean and make sand castles on the land, and every time I enjoyed myself thoroughly. The ocean can be incredibly […]
