World Oceans Day is TODAY, guys!!! World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future...remember the old "SAVE THE OCEAN" campaigns? That's basically what World Oceans Day is. You can check out www.worldoceansday.org for free resources and ideas to help raise awareness about why our oceans are so important!!
If you know me, then you know how much I love the ocean. The sea. The beach.
Being born and raised in Miami, loving the ocean is just an integral part of who I am. I love to swim. I love to go boating. I love fishing. I love laying on the beach and listening to the crash of the waves...
I love the ocean...so much so, that no matter where I am or how cold it is, I am going to dip my toes in them all. I am used to the warm waters of the Atlantic in Miami and the Caribbean Sea. Yet, I went to San Francisco in January once, and it was 50 degrees out...I stripped down to the essentials and went in!
How could I not?
Our oceans provide absolutely free entertainment for our children. If you live near the beach, you know how valuable those waves are for endless summer fun for the entire family.
Sometimes I travel JUST to see the beach...they're definitely not all created equally.
While my Atlantic ocean is by far my favorite, I love all oceans, and I am fascinated by the marine and wildlife found in different areas of the world...for instance, these adorable little Harbor Seals? Not my ocean, but have you ever seen such cuteness?! LOOK AT THEIR LITTLE FACES.
LOOK AT THEM.
And WHALES. I took these photos while in Alaska a few years ago, and it was such an amazing trip. I am used to seeing dolphin and manatees in the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico...but seals and whales? WHOA.
Shortly after that trip, I began working as a Dawn Saves Wildlife ambassador, and I visited the Marine Mammal Center outside of San Francisco and got to see exactly what goes into saving these glorious creatures.
For over 30 years, Dawn dish soap has been an important part of rescuing and releasing more than 75,000 wild animals affected by oil pollution. They’ve also donated thousands of bottles of Dawn to wildlife rescue workers at The Marine Mammal Center and International Bird Rescue.
