Can you still swim?
You get to the beach, you have your beach chairs, cooler, blankets, frisbee, lotion, radio (ipod with speakers?)…and you have to buy beach tags to play on the sand and all the other stuff has to go back in the car! You can still swim and other….things (not on the sign! Besides, sand gets everywhere). I remember the old days, where you could do all this and more as long as you were nice to your beach neighbors and picked up your trash (not on sign, either).
So have fun at the beach this holiday weekend. The beaches are open, the water is still cool and the smell of the ocean is intoxicating. Just make sure you pick up your trash and be home by dark:-)
