It’s a cliché, but seeing a ‘new’ ocean for the first time is always a thrill. Rationally, I know water is water, wherever that might be: in an ocean on the other side of the world, in the atmosphere as water vapour, or in the running flow when I turn on the taps. For me, a geographical body of water sitting in a basin surrounded by a bunch of continents and above tectonic plates counts as an ocean. The body of water in front of me marks the southwestern extent of the Indian Ocean.
I’m at Arthur Head Reserve with the sight of container vessels entering and leaving the Port of Fremantle and the South Mole Lighthouse in the distance. I’m at the edge of Freo harbour in Western Australia, and truth is: I’m closer to India now than I’ve ever been.
