Atlantic Ocean, USA - Matt Frola
My Watermark is the Atlantic Ocean, North Carolina.
When I was six years old, my parents took me to the outer-banks for the first time. The outer-banks are the beaches of North Carolina. I had never been to the ocean before. I only had previous experience going to the pool.
I always thought it was really strange how the waves were crashing in and out. I had never seen that before, and never really knew what was going on. So I decided to go out, probably a little further than I should have. The waves were really starting to push me back, and I got pushed into the water, but I didn’t drown. It was just strange because the water was murky and green, verses a pool which is much more clear. So I learned from that day, don’t mess with waves.
