“We sat and listened to the seals and watched them slip in and out of the water, naming them when they resurfaced. Bonnie, Clyde, Seymour and Elvis.

They are dark green with big thorns but have the most gorgeous sunshine yellow flowers that smell like coconut. Coconut mixed with the salty air is the best smell in the world. It smells like home. Walking the beaches looking for shells is the best thing – where you can find big white whelk shells and coral pink scallop shells.”

The feeling of overwhelming panic and feeling like a tiny person in the middle of a giant stormy sea… becoming a story of mind over matter trying to stay calm although the circumstances were very very frightening. 

This feeling of panic staying in my chest during each time in the sea thereafter – wondering if that would ever happen again.”
