For the Senses: Ocean Summer

This season's link list is all about the ocean.  I was hoping to have some sand in my toes as I wrote this but the weather here is not beachy...summer is elusive on our coast this year.   This list will have to do for now.


Jack Johnson named his new album To the Sea and this video for the song You and Your Heart shows him surfing.  I will probably never try surfing as something about it terrifies me, but it is a wonder to watch and is the epitome of communing with the ocean.


This soap is in high rotation around here.  It is locally made and smells so good.   Having a shower is one of my favorite things and the scent of Ocean Mist makes it that much more heavenly.


Takao Tanabe is a west coast painter who captures the sea scape in a mystical way.  We have a poster of one of his triptychs and we love it.  In person his paintings are often huge and so they pull you into the atmosphere of a misty day by the water.


What could remind one of the sea more than salt?  Celtic Sea Salt has a wonderful taste and is full of minerals that are essential to your health. 


I recently purchased myself a bamboo t-shirt and it is a joy to wear.  So soft and cozy feeling.  I love this Lakehouse Tunic by Salt.  It would be perfect to put on after a day on the beach.
