I like this one best. I haven't been to a beach in years. I'm landlocked in the "hot stinkin' desert."
(It's been three years since I saw the sea) Maremma is a beautiful place, one of the rare places in Italy where man has not destroyed nature
It's easy for me to get disheartened about pollution and the rest... strip mining, clear cut logging, etc. I try not to get depressed because then it's as if they've polluted me too! I do hope to get to see the ocean again. It holds an almost mythical place in the hearts of desert dwellers.
