Most have spent time on the beach in their life and so have I many times. It has been sometimes with husband, sometimes with family, sometimes with friends and sometimes with class mates. There is so much one can do at beaches - take strolls, pick up shells, just sit and reminisce, go for a swim, play some games, have a sing song session, take rides on camels, enjoy refreshments, et al How do you spend time at the beach?

I haven’t been in years, but I just liked running around in the surf. I was talking to @RebeccasFarm and she mentioned she liked picking up sea glass, which I’d love to do.

@allknowing Sea glass are naturally weathered pieces of glass, which often have the appearance of tumbled stone. It is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water. It takes at least 20 to 40 years, but sometimes up to a hundred to get the right texture and shape. They start like normal pieces of broken glass, and then evolve. It's really cool. I'm hoping @RebeccasFarm will share her cool experiences with it when she logs back on tomorrow.

I have done most of the things you mentioned on visits to the beach except ride camels. There is a conspicuous lack of camels on beaches here in southeastern North Carolina. One thing we do that you didn't mention is fishing.

For fishing surely you did that on a boat.

@allknowing Most of the time when we fish at the ocean, we fish from a pier and sometimes from the beach. We call that surf fishing.
