[Error: unknown template qotd]Mountains, absolutely. I've lived by the ocean all my life. I've been to the beach maybe 5 times. The ocean frightens me with its powerful hugeness and I dislike the feel of salt water, especially when it dries. Fresh water - I've swam in springs and lakes - just feels more right to me. I love greenery - trees, vines, flowers, etc - most of which doesn't prosper where I live. I have a secret longing to live quietly somewhere in the Appalachians (maybe Kentucky or West Virginia), but I don't think my husband would ever go for that.
