I enjoy seeing beaches. That vast expanse of water still amazes
me. Some of the most beautiful and assessable coast lines are on our East
Coast, facing the Atlantic Ocean. There are constant nice waves if you enjoy salt
water with some excitement. Searching what is brought in by waves adds to the
excitement. That type coast line reaches from Jersey to Miami. Sand Dollars are
a big catch here. These are not great
surfing waves, but fun.
The Florida Keys have
beautiful coast lines but not the nice solid sand of the more northern beaches.
The beaches in Key West, we found, were rough, shelly and some coral.
When we traveled to New
England we saw nice beaches, and some beautiful rough shore lines UNLIKE Daytona.
Daytona! That is one beach I remember as a young guy. It was the first beach I
remember you could drive a car right on the beach.
The west coast of the USA has some beautiful beaches, however
much of the shore line is rough. BUT in many
places there are some big surfing waves. Lot of movies 50-60s about ‘Surfing
I was pleasantly
surprised that the Great lakes have some pretty beaches, but not the waves you
find at the oceans. BUT again, being the largest freshwater lakes in the world they
are mind boggling. My mind compared the great Lakes beaches to the Gulf of
Mexico shore lines.
The Mediterranean Sea is a mixture of rough and smooth beaches. The
French Riviera is probably the Med’s most known and visited beaches. Again no consistent
‘big’ waves as an ocean.
Hawaii’s beaches are
beautiful, some areas are picturesquely rough. WE watched surfing there.
Definitely the surfer’s paradise. We saw some of those Wave tunnels surfers
would get in and enjoy a great time.
Cuba has nice small beaches scattered among a rough coast line on the south side. Snorkeling there and the Keys is beautiful.
We used to enjoy the
salt water, I think it is good for you. I do love to see the ocean, but I have
learned I had rather be on a ship and enjoy the smell, beauty and vastness of
the SEAS. I even enjoy it when it is angry and rough. The roughest water was
50-70 ft waves in the North Atlantic. I loved it. (Of course our ship was huge,
way over the length of a football field) It was beautiful to see those waves
come over the bow and wash the decks.
Lisa is our token beach girl here in
bloggersville. She plans to move that direction one day.
