    What's your favorite thing to do at the beach?

    In my recent hub about the health benefits of the beach, I realized that there are so many things to do at the beach that I haven't done in years, and most shockingly of all, a lot of them, like burrying yourself in sand, catually have health benefits! So, what do you guys like to do at the beach?

    My absolute favorite thing to do is walk on the beach at night by the moonlight's glow. Listening to the tides come in and out. I know their will be Beaches in Heaven.

    Walk on the beach with my dog. I love to watch her barking at the crabs and losing them as the waves cover them.

      Here's a fun fact: you burn fifty percent more calories when walking on the sand?  Also, do you walk barefoot? This is excellent for exfoliating you soles, you can read more about it on my hub about the health benefits of the beach.Thnx for ansewring

    I like being in the water. Sand is probably the worst part. Even so, living next to the beach for 11 years makes you want to get away from the beach but not the palm trees.

      Haha, never thought I'd hear people getting tired of the beach! Sand is actually very good for you, maybe if you knew some of the health benifits you'd like it more? Thanks!

      I don't think that would help. Sometimes, it's not worth it.

    Before having a kiddo, it was reading. I like the water, but only for quick dips. Since having a child, I like building huge forts to hide in and big wells to dive in. I also discovered I really like boogie boarding, but my son isn't yet old enough to do this (we went with a family with older kids and I BB'd with them). Of course, knitting has never let me down - no matter where I am.

    Well, I like to be under water rather than above. Therefore, I would engage in snorkling or on occasion SCUBA diving just off beaches...

      Is this you in the photo? Are you swimming with a real elephant? That's amazing. I can't even wear goggles. Opening my eyes under water makes me want to breathe, and I get all flabbergasted. smile

      No that is not me; it just happens to be the most uncommon diving picture I have ever seen...

    i enjoy walking on bare foot in the sand.  it's instant foot scrub, exercise and sight-seeing in one.

    Walk and look for shells unless i am in clear water near a coral reef. Then I would snorkel until I was waterlogged!!
