Give me some examples in media of the creation/summoning/existence of an improbable sea.

One of my favorite books is Abarat, and in the first book the protagonist, who lives in the Midwest, summons a seemingly impossible sea to carry her to the mythical world of Abarat. I recently read a short story, "Women in Fear" by Inaam Kachachi, where another similarly impossible sea appears in the middle of Baghdad, leading me to believe that this may be a metaphor frequently used to represent coming freedom.
I love this image, but I can't find anything on TV Tropes about it - are there any other works where an improbable sea sweeps someone away?
I don't think it relates to Noah's Ark, but I could be wrong.
