That's a shame, but on the plus side, you get to look at the ocean. I was born on the west coast and have lived here in landlocked Calgary for 13 years. I miss the balm my eyeballs get when I see oceans, or even lakes. The only water I'm near is a river and it's a puny one. Long, but puny. So, lucky you.
And that wasn't daft, it was funny. Funny in an old man kind of way
