Life's A Beach

In all my years I've never understood why anyone would want to spend the day at the beach. I love the beach at sunset, with a walk along the shore. But what do you do a whole day long?
I totally get it now.

  3. Except when you live in San Francisco and the water at Ocean Beach is always one degree warmer than Freezing! LOL I have the beach about 10 minutes from us but you have to bundle up for skiing if you want to go.

  5. This Kansas native loves her some beach-y time. Good thing I moved to the coast. Now, I can be on the sand in just under 3 hours.

  6. A whole day at the beach? I could spend EVERY day at the beach! Too bad I'm at least a day's drive away. So we settle for the pool...

  7. I LOVE the beach. Most of my best memories take place at the beach. We used to live 15min from a really beautiful one. I miss it since we've moved.

    Great picture!

  8. So true. I used to get bored after an hour or two. But now that I have a child? Yeah, I get it.
    Today was a great day for the beach, too. Beautiful weather!

  9. We spent a good time today at the beach too, and the waves were crazy! We, mostly Brent and me, had so much fun in those waves!

  12. What a sweet picture! I can't wait to take our kids back to the beach, but we're waiting until school starts when it will be cooler (TX is HOT!), less crowded, and our house will be finished.

  13. Dig your feet into the sand. Lay in a lounger and relax. Listen to the waves. Feel the sun on your face. Drink an ice cold tea. Lay in the sun until you're so hot you can't take it and then run into the freezing cold water. Play frisbee. I LOVE THE BEACH!

  15. Looks like a fun day. We're hoping to get a beach day in soon. (We have to. Summer's almost over!)

  16. The beach--it is awesome. Boogey boarding, knee boarding, body surfing, chilling in a chair or reading a book on your towel, munching on sandy pretzels or drinking from a soda can with sand around the bottom. Awesome, I tell you.

    --the girl who lives AT the beach and yet, due to two small kiddos, has not been at all this summer. :tears:

  17. I have read a lot about going to the beach today on different blogs...I really need to go to one eventually!

    It makes me excited to go because I have never been to one before.

  18. I could spend my whole LIFE at the beach. :)

  19. Going to the beach is my very favorite thing to do. When I can go by myself, that is, and bring along a stack of good books a nice lounge chair.

  20. Not a huge fan of the beach at all. Maybe it's because I don't like the sand. Or the salt water. Or the sun.

    But we're taking Woggie for the first time in the Fall... I'm sure it'll have a whole new meaning after that!

  21. I totally can stay out there all day long and have been before....its awesome.

  22. There is nothing like a day at the beach. Glad you had a good time!

  23. Isn't Lake MI amazing...We just spent a week at the beach with the kids and there is just nothing like it!

  24. So much fun. I am missing the beach right now :) Glad you all had a blast!!

  25. Man, I miss the beach. Lake Michigan is so much better than Lake Erie, at least where we're at now. I miss the sand dunes too! Great picture - looks like so much fun. I am definitely a beach bum at heart.

  26. It took you this long to get it? hee hee I love the beach! And the pool. Much more fun as a kid but I still love it. I mostly love getting a sea doo or speed boat and going out on the lake! YES! lol

  27. I can't live without easy access to water. Hence, I've lived in Minnesota and San Diego. I spend at least half of my summer days at the beach.

  28. absolutely love the beach! So glad you had fun!

  29. I've always been a beach bum. My 3 1/2 year old just went surfing with her Daddy for the first time this morning. It was so obvious that it is in her blood too! Happy to here you get it!

  30. We love the beach. That is one thing I will miss when we move away. We just did a family day there on Saturday. I didn't post about it because I don't think everyone else gets as excited about my beach days as I do and I had already done one beach post last week. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  31. We just hit the New Buffalo beach for the day last week and it was wonderful. Until it got too hot. My daughter hates being "dirty" so we had to overcome that hurdle, but everyone finally left happily with bribes of chicken nuggets at McDonald's. Wish I could squeeze in one more beach trip before school starts, but I don't think that will happen!

  32. I get it now with a child, too. I never really got it before. I wish we had a cool beach CLOSER!!! Beautiful pic, girlie!!

  33. I can stand about 20 minutes at the beach, sadly....

  34. I LOVE the beach! Living so close, you'd think I'd get there more often. We've only been once this summer. We'll probably go more in the fall after most of the tourists leave ;-)
