    Wjy Don't They Get It?

    My family has been hassling me for years to join them at the beach. I like the beach well enough in the autumn or the winter, when I can walk along a lonely stretch of it and watch the ocean. But I can't stand it in the summer, packed with overweight, underdressed people. I can...

    Glad I'm Not the Only One.

    I was born and raised on the beach.  Cape Hatteras, NC.  I've got lots of good memories, as a little girl.  But, everything's fascinating when you're little. Nowadays, there's no way in hell I'll set foot on a beach.  Here's a fairly extensive listing of...

    Not a Beach Fan...

     I love swimming in the sea and all the beach games like volleyball and rounders etc but the actually beach is lame. I hate the feel of sand in between my toes and how sand gets bloody everywhere. I will go home and weeks later still find sand in about everywhere you can...

    What???? There Really Is Others Out There??

    I can't stand the beach.  It stinks, it's polluted, dead things all around, and sand gets eveeeerywhere.  I hate swimming so water isn't really a turn on either.  Go figure though, I live on an island.  How's that for irony??

    I Hate The Sand!

    I can't stand the beach. The sand gets in every single thing, even when said thing/s have not even touched any sand! It drives me crazy! Plus, they're always packed, and I can't say I enjoy stripping down in front of a large group of people... That's why I love having your own...

    Is It So Strange?

    I do not like the beach; I never have and I never will.  When I tell people this, they always look at me like I have four heads.  (Which is ridiculous; I would never even consider having an even number of heads!)  I, however, don't think it is that strange. ...
