Summer time is here and all I can think about is getting to the beach and feeling some sunshine on my skin. Floating in the sea and staring at the sky. Time out from everyday life. We all need it.
What is the appeal of the beach as a vacation destination? If you deconstruct it’s an odd choice – sitting on fine gravel, lying around on a towel, drinking warm fizzy drinks and sweating heavily. But, nothing feels as good as sun on the skin and sand between your toes. Beautiful clear blue sea and fine white sand. Just writing this makes me want to pack my bags and go.
