Beach Day.

Posted on | June 10, 2012 | 4 Comments

Is there anything better than a day at the beach….

when the water is crystal clear (so you can see the sharks before they see you)….

there’s not a bit of undertow….

and there is a long sandy shelf stretching out into the ocean that allows you to catch big waves even when the water is only knee deep?

A day full of sea gulls….


and being buried in the sand?

Time spent sitting in a chair in the surf….

riding a new wave board….

and hanging out with a friend?

Let’s not forget the ice cream on the pier.

Oh wait, I think there is a day better than that.  A day at the beach with all those things….right after the last day of school.

Congratulations, kiddos!  School’s out for summer.  Let the good times roll!

    Wait, is this a Ruffled Feathers post? No disasters? Not even a sandy ice cream cone? An attacking seagull? You must have been stupefied by the gently rolling waves. Or sun addled. Whatever, I’m so glad you had a perfect day.

    You North Carolineans and your “beach day” photos. ;-)

    So, where are the “big waves”?

    I know it’s not the North Shore but 4′ waves are the “big waves” when you’re 9 years old. Any higher and I’d have to make them wear their life jackets—which would have put some dorky into their day!
