Ah, beach season. For me, nothing beats lounging around in the sand with a cool beverage in one hand and good book in the other. I’ve travelled to the giant sand box for lounge lizards a few times this year and have noticed an alarming trend in the number of sand-revealers who have blatant disregard for their follow beach-goers. Please indulge me as I share some of my observations.
No one likes a sand storm, so when you’re meandering through the throngs of people to find your primo position in the sand, watch your feet! Kicking up half the beach on someone is disruptive and continuing to walk on and not apologize is rude! Be light on your toes, and remember if an accident happens, be polite and extend your apologies.
While getting your glow on, nothing kills your beach buzz more than someone walking by with a dripping item. Equally as annoying is the beach keener carrying too many items, which inevitable wind up falling into an unsuspecting person’s lap. Keep the inflatable toys and excessive beach wear to a minimum. A resting beach body will be grateful for it.
Leave the beat box at home. Blaring your music out for the masses to hear is not everyone’s cup of tea. It’s not so much the choice of music but the poor quality of sound that small stereos give off in such a wide open space. The beat can become more ear piercing and less toe tapping!
The number of litterbugs who leave their trash behind is nearing epidemic proportions. Just because a garbage can is not within 30 feet of you does not give you the right to leave empty sunscreen bottles and sandwich wrappers in the sand. Think about tomorrow’s beach visitors and take your waste with you. No one wants to come to the beach the next morning to find a mini-landfill!
