There is something about water

There is something about water that I just love. Whether it be the ocean, lake, river, pool, pond, or a stream, I always feel like I am naturally attracted to those places. Maybe it's because I am a Pisces? Not sure, but there is something about the water that puts me at ease and makes me happy.

I recently went down to Corpus Christi, a beach town here in Texas that I use to live at. You know, when I lived there I never thought that I would miss it, but here I am, home again, and I find my self reminiscing of the places I had once been. Wishing that water was still 5 minutes away, missing that smell of the ocean breeze and feeling the sand on my knees. Not only that, I loved having fresh seafood, I grew a slight obsession with Oysters. Oyster happy hour was where I wanted to be. 5 bucks for a dozen? Yeah, count me in. There also was a place called Coffee Waves that I really liked. They had something called "Magic Cookie Gelato" it was AWESOME. And I am one for many sweets, but I craved this so often, they sure made business off of me. While down in Corpus, I wanted to stop there, but I knew it was far and out of the way from where we were planning on going, but I did however see that they opened up a little cart near a gas station to sell Gelato! If only I had stopped by..

A place we did go, was the Aquarium. I hadn't been in a very long time, since I was young, so I was kind of excited actually. But a strange thing happened to me when I visited one room, it was the jelly fish room. When I walked in, it was like I was dreaming again. A month prior to my visit to the Aquarium, while I was in South Carolina, I remember a dream I had, I told my friend about it, and thought it was weird. I dreamt of a dark room, much like the one I had entered in the Aquarium, and on a table of some sort, there was a small round tank, black, completely black, and it had the tiniest jellyfish inside. That's all that happened in my dream. Then I woke up, and a month or so later I enter a room that felt like I was in my dream again. Strange, I know. I feel as if this has happened to me before. I don't know how to explain it. But I can't help but think about it because it was so real. So lifelike. My dream, became reality. I only wish, I was making this up, because part of me is freaked out.
