Unfortunately women seem to love it, but I hate it.

Every time I hear about someones dream vacation its always some island or sandy beach. But to I loathe the beach and think its disgusting. Its humid, it smells like dead fish, sand gets everywhere, the waters salty, theres creepy fish around you that might bite you, its crowded, fish use that water as a toilet, etc. I much prefer vacationing in the mountains or a nice city. Even a place like Lake Tahoe where the water is fresh and has no creepy fish in it.

I am pale and burn easily. I don't like the beach very much.

You seem to have an issue with fish.

More likely it's the brown sand.

Hate to break it to ya, but fish, as well as other wildlife use fresh bodies of water as a toilet too. Maybe you should stick to the city pool.

I LOOOOOOOVE the beach. You can probably find a nice cabin in the mountains in Tennessee at a great price.

I love the beach! I love the ocean air and the sound of the waves crashing in. I love swimming in the ocean more than lakes. It seems fresher to me.

You make a day at the beach sound like the invasion of Normandy. Anywhere can be made to sound harsh or beautiful.

What makes you think a public pool is any better?
