Good morning my dear friends…

When was the last time you went to the Beach?.. do you like it? or prefer other place than the Beach...…..


...So, start to post here!......

oh gosh, it must be going on 6 years since I've been to the beach I used to go to Myrtle Beach every year, but haven't since 2003. That being said, no the beach is not my favorite place I like hiking in the woods better

It's been probably three years since I've been on a beach. Of course, I could go to our beach here on Lake Michigan, but it's not nearly as nice as more tropical beaches!

I absolutely love the beach and am missing it like crazy. I use to live 15 minutes from the beach down in central jersey and I was a night beach person. I LOVED to sit on the beach at night (sometimes all night long until sunrise) and just be by myself, clear my mind and enjoy the time. Living in north Jersey now and working a lot I don't have much time to go down to the beach. I think it has been at least 2 yrs since I have stepped foot on the beach. I wish I could afford to have a beach house cause I would then be in HEAVEN.

Going NUTS without a beach

I like the beach if it's a lake beach... not such a fan of the ocean beaches. Last time I was at the lake was last year and we'll be going back again at the end of July. I can't wait!

It's not that long ago really because the beach is only 15 minutes from me.

I hate the sand on my feet and body though, and i can't wait to get it off

I was just at the beach a few weeks ago. St Petes in florida.

I love jetskiing and kite flying on the beach... but I think my favorite place to be is in my backyard in my garden.

I have always found the ocean so relaxing. I am about 4 hours away from the beach but havent been since I have had the cats. I usually go at least a couple of times a year. Last year I thought about packing the cats up and taking them with me for a week, but didnt.

LOVE IT!

I live in The Outer Banks NC so I go to the beach often (of course I only swim when it is warm) I love the beach! My children love the beach! I am an overly paranoid Mama and I do tend to stress out when we are at the beach with the kiddos! I just worry too much though

I guess the answer is right now since we live by the shore. You should see the seagulls (the size of roosters) targeting our car. The cleaner and shinier it is, the more they aim for it.

It's always cold here by the water... brrrrr....

Let's see....it was the summer of 2005. I went to Destin, FL with my aunt, cousin, and my cousin's husband and her two girls. We had a gorgeous condo right on the beach, and that part of the beach was private for the line of condos so it wasn't crowded at all. It was absolute heaven! Of course, a lot of the reason I was coming was to help out with my newborn cousin (cousin's daughter...so once removed?). But even with a screaming 2 month old on my hip, I had a very relaxing time.

I've never been to an ocean beach. I've been on the beach at Lake Michigan---it was cold and rainy and I loved it! I live 5 blocks from the Mississippi River, so I can hit a "beach" there pretty much any time I feel like it.
Having said all that, I don't really care for beaches. My favorite place to walk, sit, and just relax is the cemetery across the street.

There are many beaches where I live, none within walking distance, but many only a short drive away. I have never really been a beach type, though, except for walking, especially on the sand flats at low tide. It's a couple of years since I've even done that. If it were within walking distance, I'd probably do it more often.

I get to the beach a few times every summer season. I live right on the shores of Georgian Bay and there are several very nice fresh water beaches within a few miles of where I live. One of the best is the town beach which is about 5 minutes walk down the fitness trail from the end of my street.
I don't swim or go to the beach as much as I use to, when I was a child I was raised right beside a river and spend most of my summers days swimming, canoeing and sailing when I kid...

I was at the beach just last month in Hawaii! I live in Chicago, so we're pretty land-locked. I don't get to one often. I love the beach, though...especially if I've got a margarita in my hand.

I live in New Jersey so am very close to the Jersey shore but I haven't been to the beach in many years. I am aware of how bad the sun can be for your skin, I do go on the broadwalk and my fav restaurants but stay away from the beach.

Congrats on your new job.

My mom and I walked the Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day (August 1st.) We had lunch on the beach at the STRAITS OF MACKINAC It was beautiful! I can't wait to do it again this summer!
post #19 of 28
Ocean beach or lake beach?? If you mean ocean beach then it was at Christmas time right before my son turned 4. If I can count lake beach, then I was there late last summer...Labor Day I think?? My parents live on a lake and we go there almost every weekend in the summer.

April 2008 (cruise to Mexico.) I like the beach as long as it's not too hot outside.

The beach is a 2 hour drive from where I live. I LOVE it. I love the smell and the shops... everything! I also love horseback riding at the beach! I love racing my friends... about two years ago I actually fell off at the beach and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. I don't remember much but I still love the beach!

I like to shop at Seaside... and get some salt water taffy! They also have some cool Pirate and knick-knack shops. We typically go riding at Nehalem Bay, I haven't been in the bay, but we're going to ride in it next time! [We just rode along the beach this last time.] I also love going to Mo's they have awesome clam chowder served in bread bowls!

I think Rob and I went to the beach twice last year. Once was when we stayed in a beachfront hotel for our wedding night and the following night, the second time was in the summer.

We've got plans to go a few times this year, considering its only about 30-40 miles from our house. I love lounging out on Isle of Palms. In 2006 we used to go every Friday for relaxation time after leaving work early (I used to get out at 1pm every Friday, he'd get out around 2pm. Doesn't work that way anymore!)

I live about 10 minutes drive from the beach but believe or not I haven't been to the beach since January and it was 8 hours away!

Here is Papamoa beach

ohh Wellington Cats that beach looks great!!

I ADORE the beach it is my favorite place to be. The last time I went to the beach was last summer and my sisters and I went to Rhode Island. IT was awesome but stilll not a as pretty as the beaches in Florida. There is just something about that super blue water...

I do go to Florida every year only this year I didn't go with my fiance..if we go together then we head to the beaches in Fort Lauderdale, Miami or South Beach. But since I went with my orchestra this year. There were no beaches since i Was too busy chasing a group of student musicians through Disney World!
And the friends that we stay with in Florida when we do go down are coming up to visit us this summer. SO maybe next year I will get to go to the beaches in Florida!

Yeah both those beaches are 2 of the best in the country - I liked the top one best, I didn't really like the 2nd one and I hated all the construction going on which you can see in the background.

I didn't swim in either though because of the jellyfish - yet look at how many people were in Papamoa!!

Last August I think was the last time I went to the beach - to swim. At New Year's we were on the beach, but the water was frozen solid!
I love the beach and swimming, don't really care for sun bathing though. I love our Great Lakes beaches here in Ontario.
