Most of us don't look so good in a swimsuit. Unfortunately, this makes many of us feel bad. But, no matter how bad you look on the beach, wait a little while, and someone will come along that makes you look freakin' FABULOUS.
Tattoos are the plague of this generation. (Well, one of the more visible plagues)
I love watching parents teach their kids how to love the beach and ocean - whether it be swimming, sand castles, boogie boards or paddle ball. It makes me smile and respect that parent. It also makes me wish that one of them would take one of my kids and teach them all that cool stuff while I read my book.
The only thing more irritating than trying to stop an evil child from stomping your sandcastle is noticing the child's idiot parents silently watching him do his damage.
The sheer power of the ocean is awe-inspiring. Especially when it is mashing your face into the sand beneath a wave. Over and over and over and over again.
Dean Koontz "Breathless" - one of the worst books of all time.
One child always underestimates the importance of sunscreen reapplication. And we all hear about it for days afterwards.
Oh, to be young again.
I also noticed that my "needs" at the beach change as the week progresses.
2 liter Mountain Dew
Box of Yellow Zingers
Yep. Perfect day.
Tomorrow: Drive home.
