Maybe you just missed the nautical references in those 3 sentences?

Probably, though I scrutinized them from every angle. ;)

"She smelled like cream and incense. Her arms were cool. She was crying too."

Literally the only three sentences in the eight-sentence paragraph that didn't carry through on the theme.

Crying is salt water though... >.>

LOL Good point. I'm still stuck on cream and incense, though.

No sentence is truly complete without a reference to sea turtles. ;)

Sadly, everything from the greatest of literature to my own inadequate scribbling is rife with incomplete sentences! (And this has highly amused me, so probably for the next few days I'll be mentally finishing every sentence with "something, something, sea turtles." ;)
