"Life. Life. I just, I couldnít live anywhere without the sea"

Life. Life. I just, I couldnít live anywhere without the sea. I used to work on the cruise ships, I worked on cruise ships for three years and it was fab, just being out in the middle of the sea, you know. Just, my whole lifeís here, walking along the seafront, looking at the sea- thereís nothing better. Lots of people take it for granted but when I get in my car in the morning and drive up to work, and I drive along the seafront, I just think itís absolutely beautiful down here. Itís my life. Iím a Pisces as well. Iím going to become a beach lifeguard next year so Iím closer to the sea. And then obviously if Iím beach lifeguard next year, then maybe Iíll be closer to the lifeboat and everything as well.
