A day at the Beach

I went to the beach for the first time on Saturday. Now, I've been to the ocean, to the beach even I guess, but this was my first time when I could swim. And swim I did! I really enjoyed myself. I guess I never really understood why people liked the beach so much. I just figured you could swim in a lake just as well and forget those crowds. Turns out I wasn't quite right. The ocean does have quite the allure. And playing in waves is ridiculously fun, not to mention quite a workout. I of course didn't put enough sunscreen on and so I did end up with some burns. In places I've never been burned before due to the fact that I've never really exposed my back and chest to the full rays of the sun ever before in my life. So there's that. It was just a quick day trip thanks to Frontier's very cheap sales. It made for a long and very fun day.

I know nothing about waves.

What a great idea! One-day whirlwind trip to the ocean from the mountains. I'm going to remember that next time I've got a little mad money! Glad you had fun.
