Maybe it's due to the fact that I was born in sunny Southern California just minutes from the beautiful blue Pacific, but I've always been drawn to the sea. I'm fairly certain there's a hefty percentage of ocean water running through my veins. Sure, I got knocked down by the surf a couple of times while wading as a kid. I remember being dragged by the undertow until I was nearly out of breath. The gross-out factor when slimy seaweed wrapped itself around my skinny little legs was definitely there. And the occasional whiff of rotting fish was not too thrilling either.
Despite all that, I am helpless to resist the magnetic charms of the beach - the gentle sounds of the surf; the distant cries of gulls; the comforting caress of soft, warm sand beneath my bare feet; the sharp aroma of salt on the cooling sea breeze. These are what inspired me to create this summertime favorite candle. I live hundreds of miles from the ocean now, and this is the closest thing I've found to actually being there. I hope it brings you to the sea without leaving home as well! See it here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10644186
