    This thread makes me excited. I just paid the reservation fee this afternoon for our accommodation in the beach resort, this is a new one. As per the website, the rooms look classy and the restaurant is a semi fine dining that is a branch of Max's, the most popular chicken house here. Aside from the beach, there's also a large swimming pool. As usual, we are going with my sister and her family. We timed the trip on Thursday because it's a holiday on the occasion of People Power revolution. And Friday? We are taking a leave from office.

    I'll be looking forward to your sharing some pictures here with us. :) My husband and I go to Fort Walton Beach at least once a year. My soul needs that refreshing!

    I love going to the beach. I have a second home in Southern Spain just 10 minutes from the beach.

    Picture of my family at one of the hundreds of beach bars as the sun was getting ready to set...

    We aren't really "beach" type people and that's why moving back to Colorado is in our future plans. Going into the Rockies and seeing big-racked Bull Elk is our kind of relaxation. Actually, the beach in So. Calif. is more attractive than the beaches here.........for us anyway.

    I just love going to the ocean and walking along the beach. When I lived on the Washington coast, it was only an hour or two drive to get to the ocean, and we would go every now and then. The water in the Pacific is cooler than the water in the Atlantic; so you have to be very determined to do more than get your feet wet in that cold water; but it was a good balance in the warm weather.
    Now, we are much closer to the Atlantic, or even the Gulf of Mexico, both of which are much warmer than the Pacific is; but still way too far away to just drive down to the ocean for a day or two.
    Bobby and I have talked about taking a mini-vacation down there and go down on either the bus or the train. To take the train, we would still have to take the bus to Birmingham, and then make our way to the train depot. Right now, it is not going to be an affordable thing for us; but something fun to at least dream about doing some day.

    I like beaches but I don't like swimming, just like my daughter who goes to maui at least once a year. She packs a bathing suit and cover up for every single day but doesn't put her toe in the water. :)

    Did you wave to Simon? Very pretty place, Holly!

    I like that area where your husband is sitting, so peaceful and close to the water yet you don't get all sandy.

    Oh yes I was waving to him...Simon, simon I was calling...you seemed to have forgotten someone...but nada.....he seemed to not be able to hear me for the noise of the silly engine.. :eek::D


    Oh yes our promenades are all very well laid out so no need to get covered in Sand to sit and admire everything on the beach...and equally most of the beach bars are just downstairs from the promenade so again no big trek across the sand to get a drink

    I love the beach sound of the waves crashing to shore and rolling out again over and over hearing it makes me relax. I love the smells of the ocean too! Sometimes you'll see visitors of the ocean too that makes it so wonderful to be at the beach at the same time as the creatures that we share the ocean with.

    I hate beaches, well maybe dislike, hate is a tad strong, it has something to do with my childhood experiences of being dragged to the seaside most summer weekends and enduring sand in my sandwiches. :eek:
    Lisa loves beaches so I always ensure we stay by the sea sometime during our vacations, but I never spend any time myself on the beach. I prefer forests, mountains, and old towns.

    Here is a rare pic of me on a beach taken in 1949 with my mother and my brother, I am the innocent looking one on the right :rolleyes:

    This is one of most of my immediate family on the same beach in 1955, I am centre at the back, feeling pretty miserable I would think :(:)
    Sadly most of the people in the photo are dead now, including my sister centre front.
