I count it as a case of "to each their own", but my preference is for something more interesting than the beach as well. To me, beaches are boring. We live within four hours of the ocean and have visited it about six times in the last 20 years. You look out and see a lot of water; look down and there's nothing but sand; look behind you and .... well, usually a lot of ugly development. Though, here on the east coast, you can go inland a bit and come upon a lot of marshes to explore. Plenty of wildlife to be seen there. The last time we went to the ocean, we got a place on the beach so we could leave the windows open and sleep to the sound of the surf, but spent our days inland, birding and looking for wildlife. Had to use the Sooper Dooper Skeeter repellent; those things were big enough to carry off our small dog
I like to sit on the beach with my eyes closed, take in the breeze, listen to the waves crash and smell the salt air. It's so relaxing I could never get bored.

When I think of the beach, I think of hot white sand, warm turquoise water, the smell of oil, a good book...everything that is relaxing...(although I only get to relax like that when I'm alone, without my son).
Yep. I love the beach...it's in my genetic makeup I think.

THIS is my perfect beach.

I have never seen the ocean or been to a real beach. I'm sure I'd enjoy it, but I'm not crazy about sand on my bare feet. I'm sure I could put up with it, though.

I love the beach! Love the smell of salt air! I love mountains and lakes, too. Good thing that beautiful New England has them all within a short drive:

I love watching the waves and the feel of the warm sand. It's such a beautiful sight to see. I don't like swimming in the ocean but I do like to get my feet wet. It's very relaxing to me.

I love the beaches here!
Gonna try to enjoy them as much as I can before they disappear under the oil.

I like this beach and I love the Keys. I'm just worried about the beaches there now. I'm worried we'd be smelling a different type of oil there soon.

You and me both!
I have spent 3 out of the last 4 weekends at the beach, both Atlantic and Gulf.....think we are going to Tarpon Springs this weekend.
