I am grateful for the ocean. I was feeling tired and dull when I arrived there today. It was hard to find the motivation to leave the comfort of 4-walls and venture forth to the place where I can legitimately shout "I can see the sea!" (the only other time, is at the opticians...). But once you hit that water, oh my. What a feeling. So much energy afterward.
Thanks also to the Iceman Wim Hof for helping to set me (and so many others) on this path. One year ago I would not have done it - why on earth would any madman want to go into freezing water in the winter? Just try it.
