I was out for my evening stroll along the shore of the Pacific Ocean. The beautiful orange and dark grey hues of the horizon, illuminated by the late sun, amazed me. The evening was cold, and I felt a chill in the air. I took a few steps into the ocean. The water was icy against my fur. Waves crashed against my feet as I strolled. I stopped and looked out towards the horizon. I felt a deep connection to the ocean and knew my life would never be the same.
