A little while ago, Michael D’Agostino, of A Life Examined, brought up the idea of a new blog hop called Question of the Month. He thinks blog readers would like to know a little more about us, the bloggers. So we’re all gathering to show you guys who we are by taking part in the Question of the Month blog hop. On the first Monday of each month, we answer the question that gets posted here.
This month’s question is: “What’s your favorite beach?”
This is a question that’s hard for me to answer for three main reasons.
1. I live in a beach town (Virginia Beach & Chesapeake Bay) and therefore don’t have the great admiration for it that someone might have, not being a beach dweller. Don’t get me wrong, I like the beach, but when it’s just down the road, it doesn’t see so exotic. Then there are the tourist that also affect my appreciation of the beach.
2. I’ve never seen a beach off the eastern shore of the U.S. I don’t really have anything to compare my cold, cloudy water experiences too just yet. I’m going on a cruise later this year and will finally get to see some mid Atlantic (closer to tropical) waters.
3. There is no sand at pools and depending on my mood, that can be a deal breaker.
With all this considered, a Spring Break in Myrtle Beach was one of my most relaxing beach experiences. I was delighted by an artificial indoor beach in Atlantic City. After a day of touring casinos and the boardwalk, we headed inside to escape strong winds and looked out over the water in the safety of department stores and food vendors. I guess I’m still waiting for a beach experience that makes me fall in love with it. For now, I like the beach and appreciate that it’s something to do on a nice day when there’s nothing else to do.
Please visit the other participants in this hop and even join in if you’d like. I can’t wait to see what other beaches people like or don’t like.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
