Get my Beach Bum outta me!

I used to be a huge beach bum. I loved going to the beach. I actually went into the water, I didn't just go to decorate the sand like most girls do. We have very many beaches here, so you could go to a different beach every day of the week and you would have a different scenery, a different atmosphere every time. What I could have used in my beach bum days was a beach cruiser. (Check out this Beach Cruiser Shop...the website is awesome and the prices are reasonable.) Instead of walking on the boardwalk, just cruise along and enjoy the scene without getting your feet tired or stepped on. I could have also used a nice handbasket to carry my lotions and towels. Park far from the actual beach? As in most cases here, parked across the main road and have to trek for twenty minutes to get to water? No worries, just get on this cute little puppy and ride down to the sand. That's my personal favorite, I like the pink/teal combination, it's not too girlie, but it is still feminine...you know what I mean...and I like the style of the bike, very sleek and comfortable. For men they also have some Harley-style bikes that I'm sure our husbands would like.
I haven't really been to the beach since I had Little Man. I think I went once this past summer, whereas he went almost weekly with my sister. I think the last time before this last summer was when I was pregnant, and I was not happy to be on a beach with a belly. Hopefully this next summer I can get my inner beach bum out again and get down to the waves. I do miss it, I am a Cancer after all, I belong on the beach...

I used to live at the beach, too. My high school was a few blocks from the beach, so it was an almost every day, after school event.

Now, when we go? I hide out under a blanket and read while my husband takes the kids to the water. And complain about the sand in my snacks. LOTS of complaining.

SPM-I wonder what age it is that we stop liking the sand in our food...because I know when we were younger we didn't mind it...
We loved eating SANDwiches!LOL
