Today, 8th JUNE is celebrated as WORLD OCEANS DAY. I came to know this when I visited Crazy Cris at Here and There and Everywhere. I am also participating in the Oceanic Blog-A-Thon.
We all know Ocean is a marvelous gift of God to mankind. It does several things for the benefit of human beings. But man in his greed for wealth is slowly destroying the seas and the oceans by letting out industrial waste into the sea, indiscriminate hunting of marine food, oil spillage from tankers, throwing plastic waste on the beaches etc. If we don’t understand the seriousness of our actions we will have to face oceans wrath one day.
This post is a reminder to us of the various benefits and advantages we derive from the seas and oceans. Please click on the photos for a larger and lovely view.
Deep blue ocean— mysterious, bewitching, spellbinding and awe inspiring.
Cruise ships bring hundreds of tourists to our shores.
Fishermen go to the deep sea in their colorful motor boats to get our daily quota of fish.
We watch breathtaking sunsets over the ocean and seas.
We watch rolling waves with roaring sound with great admiration
Cargo ships bring various products to our place from other countries.
People stand on the shores to enjoy the breeze and to feel the sea water under their feet.
Chinese fishing nets at the mouth of the sea entrance enable many fishermen to earn their living without going out into the sea.
Oil tankers bring crude oil to our city from oil producing countries.
People sit on the rocks dumped in the sea to prevent soil erosion and chatting away in the evening.
Dear friends take care of the sea and the ocean and they will take care of us.
