Long Island is famous for its sandy ocean beaches. Between the barrier beach and the main coast is the Great South Bay. The beaches and dunes have very different characteristics. The sandy beach is the junction of land and ocean. The sandy beach consists of two zones, the swash zone and the drift line. The swash zone is the area of wet sand, caused by the incoming wave. The drift line is formed by the dead seaweed and other aquatic plants. Behind the sandy beach is the primary dune. The primary dune's main function is to absorb the force of the ocean and protect the great south bay and the island's main coast. In some cases secondary dunes form. These dunes are behind the primary dune and are therefor protected from the ocean. This provides the stability necessary for plant growth. Many time a maritime forests will form on secondary dunes.

Beach (2013) touches on the fascination of how complex our brain works, the control we carry with our identity and the ways our brains misperceive details around us that can be impossible to avoid but possible to change (Para 31). Surprisingly, our ways of thinking is connected to our culture (Para 20). Subconsciously, the closet people in our lives- parents, friends, and teachers- influence our culture (Para 20). Culture comprises our personal beliefs and customs that we practice in our daily lives (Para 20). These distinct values and traditions that we strongly hold give us a sense a purpose and desire to continue living our everyday lives (Para 20). We are allowed to accept or deny any subcultures that roll our way. Each individual views

The real impact regarding local residents and businesses on Cronulla beach is their influence on the government as well as their input and suggestions on points of improvement for the Beach. After all, these are the people that are going to be affected the most from any changes occurring. For example the sea wall at Cronulla Beach is not the most attractive thing, yes it is highly beneficial but the local residents and businesses that have to look at it all the time, may not be as pleased as the government is with the idea. It also needs to be taken into consideration that future development doesn’t impact on their property value, access to the beach or coastal views.

At about 8 in the morning, I woke up smelling the most delicious smell of my breakfast for my birthday. As I get out of bed, the smell of food is making me glide through the air and taking me to the kitchen. But, before I can even go into the kitchen I can smell all of the food whispering in my ears and moving up my nose. The smell of brown sugar and banana cascade through the house like an intense air freshener as the banana bread is basking in the oven. This smell only intensifies as the aroma of buttery, sugary pancakes hits me like a ton of brick and refuses to leave. However, the savory smell of potatoes and eggs kick the sweet smell out with a punch as my mom begins to produces the savory foods like the speed of light.
Before becoming a military wife, I grown up in New York State. I remember throughout my childhood we were always being forewarned that the Big Apple state was always endanger of a having beach erosion along the coast. As of today, the beach erosion is in the news because it’s almost beach season and the state has plans to shore the beach up with sand. This made me curious to find out whether the erosion at the beach has grown into a matter-of-factily a hype, or if in fact the beach erosion was correctly a concern. I was able to research two articles on the New York beach erosion, and I was able to gain a clarification on this prediction. The two articles both agree that there is erosion, but I did some research and one presents a closer

Dover Beach intrigued me as soon as I read the title. I have a great love of beaches, so I feel a connection with the speaker as he or she stands on the cliffs of Dover, looking out at the sea and reflecting on life. Arnold successfully captures the mystical beauty of the ocean as it echoes human existence and the struggles of life. The moods of the speaker throughout the poem change dramatically as do the moods of the sea. The irregular, unordered rhyme is representative of these inharmonious moods and struggles. In this case, the speaker seems to be struggling with the relationship with his or her partner.
The place where I feel most comfortable is a place where I am calm. A place that is peaceful in its own ways. It is the place to go to get away from all my troubles. It is the one place where I could sit forever, and never get tired of just staring into the deepest blue I have ever seen. It is the place where I can sit and think the best. A place where nothing matters but what is in that little moment. The one place capable of sending my senses into an overload. This place is the ocean.
