From her mother, the author learned to swim when she was three.  Her father taught her to body surf and to make sand-castle turrets from dribbles of wet sand.  She fed fish to seals at Marineland, saw the embalmed Winnie the Whale at Hermosa Beach before she burst into flames, and rode the Ferris wheel at Pacific Ocean Park.  Sweating in school buses and classrooms in the San Fernando Valley, she vowed some day to live by the sea.  And now she does, although the water here is much too cold for her to swim in.
