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”

We went to Florida for a week, in February this year.

It was my first time to Florida, Actually, I had a bunch of “firsts” on this vacation!

Thanks to Scott’s sister Barb and brother in law Jerry, we were able to take a nice trip together. They stayed at our place and took care of all the critters.

Although Jerry thinks my horses poop more than necessary. Winking smile
