Mensagem:  You're right on the meaning of "from sea to shining sea". It means from one coast to another, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and its origin is a quotation from Sir John A. MacDonald on the occasion of the founding of Canada,1885. It is also part of the lyrics of a popular American song.
