This week at
Robyn picked the prompt that is so close to my heart.
Yes, I am more of a "water" person than the "mountain". I like to live close to the water, that was my dream since I was a little girl, I often dream of having a tiny house near the water.
When I lived in New York City, I walked to the Hudson a lot, a lot of times when I was alone and feeling down and a lot of times when I just walked with some of my best friends having fun.
Then the last one year and a half in the East Coast, we lived in Jersey City, which I have to take the Path, a underground train that goes under the Hudson river, it was 4 minutes away from the World Trade Center (Twin Tower) in NYC, when we walked out of the train station, the Hudson is just there, we usually walked along the river to get home, it was a 5 minutes walk of joy every single time.
I also have the opportunity to live by the Atlantic Ocean for a short period of time, that was the Jersey Shore, Long Branch, New Jersey to be exact, we rented a house off season and have the ocean all by ourselves, that was the good old days, we are looking forward to go back there someday soon, I don't know when, but I do hope that it is real soon because I can feel that I am dying out in the desert. Unfortunately, my computer crushed in 2009 and I lost all of my photos so I no images of that except those in my mind.
San Francisco is the nearest I can get to the Ocean after moving to the desert, so my photo today is from San Francisco
Every time when we are in San Francisco, I just need to go to the water just feel that I am alive again.
What about you? Do you like living by the water or the mountain? Come tell us at
