2012-366 Day 197 – The Coast

If you’ve known me for any length of time, you probably know that I am not a beach person. I much prefer the mountain environs and the tranquility that usually accompanies them. The beach is usually louder, I dislike sand very much, and it’s generally hard to find shade to get away from the sun. That being said, there are certain beaches that I don’t mind. We visited one today that checked a few of my boxes (Montana de Oro) .

Beach Box 1 – Cliffs: They don’t even have to be particularly tall, as long as I can get above the waterline and look down on the waves.

Beach Box 2 – Caves: Or a cove, basically any place that you can go in and explore. They need to be of a decent size, however, I don’t like small spaces.

Beach Box 3 – Smooth Stones: For skipping. I didn’t know this was on my list until today, but it turned out to be a lot of fun, and they’re just everywhere on that beach.

I’ll have to do some more thinking to see if there are any more boxes, but those are the ones that got addressed today.

    We have a photo of you at 2 years old, probably your first visit to the beach, and you are looking at your hands with dismay after hitting the sand with both hands in a fall. You “no yiked” sand even then. You were really cute in your little hawaiian shirt, though.
