So I went and Googled – What’s the difference between an ocean and a sea?

A sea is part of an ocean that is partially surrounded by land. If it is totally surrounded, then it’s called an inland sea. An ocean is a body of salt water with no boundaries and limitless volume. It’s limitless because with no boundaries, definitive quantity cannot be deduced. Between the two, the ocean is the larger of the two. Oceans are enormous when compared to any sea. The largest sea in the world is the Mediterranean with a total area of 965,000 square miles which is much smaller than the smallest ocean in the world the Arctic at 5,427,000 square miles. There are only five oceans in the world namely the Pacific, the Atlantic, the Indian, the Southern and the Arctic while there are dozens of seas around the world. Seas being close to land are generally much shallower than oceans and therefore it is possible for plant and animal life to thrive on a sea bed because it is generally lit up by light. Ocean beds are much much deeper, and support only very basic life forms like bacteria and shrimp that feed on them in isolated parts. This is because no light reaches there and the pressure are such that marine life as we popularly conceive cannot survive. Some idea of the depth of an ocean can be had from the fact that the Pacific Ocean has an average depth of 3790 meters or 12,430 feet. The average depth of the Mediterranean Sea on the other hand is 4690 feet.

I learned something today…

…anyway, we went to Florida this year (my first time!)

We had so much fun seeing the sights and walking along the beaches.

I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite photos that pertain to the word “sea”

There’s nothing like a summer night enjoying a fire in the pit.

Oh the memories of our late Lab “Reggie” 1993 – 2009

Always the happy “puppy”.

I remember him helping me clean out his pool.

His tail wouldn’t just wag, it would spiral.

Especially after a “fresh” roll in a cow pasture. Now that’s the definition of fresh…

…oh the memories.

I like how this photo turned out.

I got the focus on Sophia running in the background and also the focused look on Feather’s face.

I love taking photos of our “kids” being carefree.

Happy, healthy, feeling their oats and not a care in the world…

…except maybe, which direction did the ball go?

FYI…I get car sick…

About 6yrs ago, my hubby and I took the horses out to Custer State Park SD.

I  lifted this photo as an example of where we had to drive…

…pulling a horse trailer…

…with traffic both ways. Sick smile

There were other roads with steep drop-offs on either side of us.

I didn’t take any photos since I was too busy trying to locate my bucket.

I thought I’d twist this around a little.

Well actually Sophia is the only one here that had issues crossing the “oceans”. We’ve happily overcome that obstacle.

A fleeting moment in time. A perfect shot, after a rain.

This is also what my husband does on his hunting trips.

Comes home with about 1000 photos, regardless if it’s a successful hunt or not.
