Considering most of Earth is covered by ocean, we should really spend more time at sea. It's soothing, adventurous, and mysterious—the ultimate escape. Life mellows when you've got the sound of the waves, the warmth of the sun, and an endless horizon before you. Dive below the surface into a coral garden with a flurry of fish. Submerge to the depths where hammerhead sharks patrol ancient shipwrecks. Then surface and find a pair of deck chairs to watch the sunset for a sea of possibilities.
