Re: When did you first see the ocean?

Atlantic, too young to remember.
Mediterranean, 15.
Pacific, 30ish.

And if we're counting seas, I saw the Aegean and the Sea of Marmara for the first time a couple months ago.

^On that note, I probably saw the Arctic when I first flew to Europe at 14. I didn't see the Pacific until I was in my 20s.

Re: When did you first see the ocean?

I was born and raised in Seattle, and trips to the coast were pretty regular, so I'm going to say, Pacific, too young to remember. I was 16 the first time I saw the Atlantic, and 27 when I first saw the Indian Ocean.

Re: When did you first see the ocean?

My parents took me to Cape Cod when I was about 4, so that would have been my first time seeing the Atlantic. My first sight of the Pacific came when I was about 20, and I went to the Los Angeles area with my father to visit relatives.

When have I ever seen the ocean? Who told you such lies?

What's an ocean, anyway?!

And what's so damn special about it?!

Re: When did you first see the ocean?

Born and raised in Va. Beach so playing in the Atlantic was always a part of my life. I moved to Hawaii for five years right out of college before returning to Virginia. I pretty much have to live around a body of water.

Age 6 - Ocean City, MD. I got sunburned. The return trip across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge at night was scary (don't know why though, it was dark and couldn't see anything).

Re: When did you first see the ocean?

Living in the midwest most of my life, until I saw the Atlantic in 1965, Lake Michigan had been the largest body of water I'd seen. I didn't see the Pacific until 1990.

Re: When did you first see the ocean?

Must've been on a trip to southern Portugal (to the Algarve region near Faro) with my parents and grand parents. I think I was 4.

Atlantic, too young to remember. Pacific, when I was 32. But neither where I lived - that would be an impressive trick! (Or some seriously out-of-hand global warming, take your pick.)

I've lived in Illinois and Colorado. If I've ever seen an ocean where I lived, we'd all have been in trouble.

Probably 14 or 15 first time I visited a place in sight of the Pacific. 19 for the Atlantic.

Re: When did you first see the ocean?

I saw the Pacific for the first time when I was 18. Then, when I was 19 I went to England and saw the Atlantic. I spent several months living near the English Channel so I saw it pretty much every day.
