Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

This week, the WordPress Photo Challenge wants to know how the sea makes us feel. The truth is, the sea makes me uneasy. I don’t trust it; it’s stronger than I am, and you can’t reason with it.

The captain decided it was too risky to stop at Santorini, the rocky island not far from the boat that you can just barely see. This is as close as we came – we were told that the waves were washing well over the docks, so even if we had made it into the harbor safely, we couldn’t disembark anyhow.
