Born near the city of Angles (Las Angles) I have indeed seen the Pacific.

And visiting my sister on Cape Cod.. The Atlantic.

Geo, Can't argue the point with a sailor. Just trying to remember what National Geographic said on TV about Superior.

Sure don't want to make a point of it to any Navy guys. I was on the USS Laffey (2,200T) recently speaking with a sailor and he told me that while underway the bow waves would wash the stern and then the screws would come out of the water. Not a good day on the shining sea.

I was on a boat one time and the waves were breaking over the bow....normally not a biggie, but i was on a aircraft carrier in the Pacific Ocean...the bow is normally 65' off the water....gave the word sea sick a whole new meaning...

I was raised 10 miles from Lake Ontario. We had some good waves at times. The first time I saw the ocean was in NC. I think I was in my 40's. I go to the ocean every chance I get now.

Still waiting to hear from someone who hasn't seen the ocean. (I live on the Gulf Coast, so I'm not eligible. )

Being a native of the west coast and having traveled quite a bit, I've seen most of them. However, in a previous life I was responsible for doing some college recruiting for our company. I hired several young people out of a college in rural Iowa who had not only never seen the ocean... they had never seen a mountain!

Gulf doesn't count, so I guess we have a winner.

Funny you should mention that. Several years ago, we hosted 2 high school kids from Iowa that attended a local college for the summer under some type college prep trade. Neither one of them had ever seen the ocean or the mountains. Living in central Va, I am 90 minutes from the ocean, and 90 minutes to the mountains, and visit both very often. For whatever reason, it had never occured to me there were people out there that had never seen mountans OR the ocean. Needless to say, we spent almost every summer weekend at one or the other. They truly enjoyed the experience.

My dog has been in the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Gulf of Mexico and many lakes and rivers in between. He is a lucky boy.

May, 1966 - Galveston on our senior trip. Brought some ocean water home in a mayonaise jar with some sand in the bottom - don't ask why. When my mom died last year, found the jar of ocean water in her fridge. She had changed the lid but was the same jar. We had a good laugh but guess where the jar and the 46 year old salt water is now? Yep, my fridge. Next ocean trip was California - disappointed that the water was so cold. Can't wait to go back to the ocean with the RV.

Seen the Pacific dozens and dozens of times. Atlantic.....zero.

I stand corrected....I saw the Atlantic from the air once.
