Our family loves the beach. Not just being in the vicinity, but the actual beach, the sand, the waves, the wind. It has always baffled me to hear that some people go to the beach to shop, or swim in a pool, or those who only actually touch the sand once or twice during their week... To me that is just weird. ;)
Our family is the type to get on the beach in the morning and stay until 4:30, 5:00 or sometimes later. Even then it isn't unusual for us to go back to the house, shower, eat dinner and head back to the beach for an evening walk or meal.
When we're done with all that we go back to the house to shower... and sometimes we head back to the sand to eat diner.
So even with the "shark" days this summer we never even considered doing anything but 'stay on the beach.
Here's to the beach. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does!
