    Default Be down the sea

    What does it mean? One guy asks a girl she loves if she and her boyfriend have been down to the sea. That's all the context I have.

    They're from the UK and they wanted to move to America, is this what it's about? Or does it mean if they love each other?

    I found a familiar sentence in the Bible but I'm not sure it fits.

    There's not enough context to give you a helpful answer, I'm afraid.

    They don't need to go all that way to be by the sea.

    The first sentence is meaningless as it stands. Who is the 'she'? (I've underlined it.) I am not familiar with the sentence in the Bible; can you give it to us?
