    What oceans or seas have you walked or stood beside? Those seen from a plane not counted.
    Also, what great rivers and lakes?

    Pacific (very often) and Atlantic (less often). That's about it.

    Atlantic, Pacific, Indian oceans and Caribbean, Baltic, Arabian, Irish & North seas, but on the rivers: only Rhine (Rijn and its distributaries), Rhone/Saone, Danube, Volga and Mississippi. I assume the Thames and Seine don't make the cut. I regret never having seen either the Amazon or the Nile, so far at least. I'm less anxious to see the Ganges or the Yangtze, for some reason.

    Lakes: Ontario, Superior, Michigan, Leman (Geneva), Bodensee (Constance), Annecy, Maggiore, Como ......and our own Loch Lomond.

    By Norths seas do you include Norwegian and Barents?

    The Thames does make the cut because it's one of my great three.

    No just the standard North Sea, i.e. between Germany and the Low Countries to the East and GB to the West. When we lived in The Hague, we used to walk on the beach at Scheveningen. It's a bloody cold sea, though.

    I made a short trip on a steam-driven Mississippi stern paddle steamer once, at New Orleans. Interesting to compare the engine with the quite different triple-expansion engine in P S Waverley side paddle steamer, on the Firth of Clyde. Nothing like that on the Thames - just a lot of people like me rowing on it in racing shells.

    I've seen the Pacific Ocean. The greatest rivers I've seen are the Fraser, the Columbia and the Saskatchewan.

    I guess that if we are going to include rivers, I have quite a few, all in North America- Sacramento, San Joaquin, Columbia, Willamette, Colorado, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, St. Lawrence, Potomac, Red (between TX and OK), Delaware, Hudson, Wabash and many more. Even the poor Humboldt, which flows (trickles is more like it) through northern NV, before it evaporates entirely in a dry lake.
