Just curious.

Me, as the crow flies, 2.7 km. To drive, maybe 8 minutes.

Edited to add a few ocean shots (although some of these are more than 8 minutes away).

About a third of a mile. Many of my entries are from Red River Beach, my local shingle:

The above are just a sampling. And "my" marsh, the one with the skiff anchored in it, is just a couple miles down the road.

Many,many hours!!!!!!!
Gorgeous shots, Robert! You are blessed to have such scenery that close! (Drooling at my desk...)
11/19/2009 02:06:58 PM · #6
7.5 hours to the Atlantic and around 30 hours to the Pacific. :(
11/19/2009 02:15:56 PM · #7
47 steps.

:-p

11/19/2009 02:24:28 PM · #8
abut 15 minutes or so from the 2 beaches in the area
11/19/2009 02:25:01 PM · #9
About a three - four hour plane ride west.

20 min walk. I haven't explored it yet though as we just moved here!
11/19/2009 02:26:13 PM · #11
I do have a sea to the left and right of me though!
11/19/2009 02:26:47 PM · #12
I don't even have a pond nearby. Except when it rains, then the area around my home fills up with water and turns into a big muddy swamp.
11/19/2009 02:28:18 PM · #13
About an hour's drive to the Atlantic.
11/19/2009 02:31:36 PM · #14
About two miles from San Francisco Bay, and about 45 minutes (driving) from the Pacific ...

When I visit up in Washington, I'm just a little over 47 steps from Puget Sound (these are all shot from the back porch) ... ;-)

Hey that's my house!

No, really it's a 5 minute drive.
11/19/2009 02:33:19 PM · #16
Five minutes is nice. I live in Manhattan (NYC), I *know* there's an ocean nearby, but I almost never see it.

11/19/2009 02:34:26 PM · #17
If the Puget Sound counts as ocean, 15 minutes. If not, about 3 hours.
11/19/2009 02:41:36 PM · #18
9 hours , or 5 hours to Mexico

Ditto

I'm 1.5 hours from OCNJ, and 1.5 hours from Dewey Beach, DE.
11/19/2009 02:55:39 PM · #21
About 7 hours to Gulf of Mexico, 9 hours to Atlantic. Way too far.
11/19/2009 03:00:13 PM · #22
about an hour and a half...either direction...I live in Central FL
11/19/2009 03:02:52 PM · #23
A five minute canoe trip across the lake, weather permitting.
11/19/2009 03:07:48 PM · #24
about 5 minutes and i wouldn't like it any other way :D
