Waking up to a fine cold morning, hoping to get a few minutes more in my warm snug bed was not to be . . . my hubby is off on a Course today and I am celebrating with everyone on this Global MyLot network - World Ocean's Day! Inspired by my hubby I had to do a little research on the matter as the news has been broadcasting this World Ocean's day since early this morning: "World Oceans Day has been unofficially celebrated every 8 June since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.[1] It was officially recognized by the United Nations in late 2008.[2] It has been coordinated since 2003 by The Ocean Project, with greater participation each year." The Purpose of this day in a nutshell: "World Oceans Day is an annual observation to honour the world's oceans, celebrate the products the ocean provides such as seafood as well as marine life itself for aquariums, pets and a time to appreciate its own intrinsic value. The ocean also provides sea-lanes for international trade. Global pollution and over-consumption of fish have resulted in drastically dwindling population of the majority of species. World Oceans Day also provides a unique opportunity to take personal and community action to conserve the ocean and its resources." I have a wonderful photo of myself and hubby at the Cape Agulhas point where Two Oceans meet in the Southern waters of Africa. The Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. How brilliant is that - we get to see two oceans at the same time. Today you are challenged to show the myLotters the ocean you know best and something about it. Give us a Trot of the Globes Oceans. #educatealittle Have a wonderful day.

Shame on me! I lived several years near the Atlantic Ocean, and I have not a picture of it on my HDD. Maybe is it because I never went to a strategic place like the one on your photo

shame on you indeed! we take being in places for granted the photos we capture remind us, that our time there is just fleeting - My hubby even went and had a swizz pee pee in the two oceans - I have it on video, we had so much fun

That's a great photo. We experienced seeing two seas (not oceans) meet at the most Northern tip of Denmark - the North Sea and the Baltic sea. I don't have a photo of it, but here's one taken on a cruise - infortunately I can't remember where we were.

@Inlemay Aha - now you've jogged my memory. It wasn't a cruise at all but a boat trip that we took when we were in Thailand.

@jaboUK there you are - FLAGS are very good in identifying a place or a boat.

I know that I do not have photos in digital format. I have to check if I have one that I can scan. Of the 5 existing I have only seen 2, the Atlantic and Pacific.

I have been fortunate to see the Indian and Atlantic but none of the others except many SEAS - like Mediterranean, Black Sea, Aegean Sea, North Sea, Sea of Marmara

Westernmost European point - Portugal Cabo De Roca.
@Inlemay I have seen the Pacific and many seas, the Aegean is part of the Mediterranean as it is the Ligurian and the Sea of Sardinia and Sicily. I have seen the Caribbean sea, The Bay of Byscay, The English Channel and the Gulf of Venezuela. Here is a photo of the Atlantic Ocean from the Westernmost European point. It is in Portugal, Cabo de Roca.

I equally love our coasts on the Tasman Sea and those on the Pacific Ocean.

We are also fortunate to have some beautiful coastlines and beaches, I think those between islands like our False Bay in CT between Robben Island and the Mountain is also long stretches of beautiful white sand.
