Why We Love Beach

Twitter
Why is beach so much fun that for a lot of people when they think of vacation, they think of beach? Sometimes, just walking at the beach and seeing the joyful faces of little kids having fun with the waves and the sand already fills me with happiness.
Seeing a family having the time of their lives celebrating some of the simple joys of life also fills me with joy and inspiration. And am sure, there are more to the beach that people long for it. Some on seeing the ocean for the first time could not help but be filled with awe and wonder as to the experiencing the power of the sea. Listening to the music of the waves as they splash the land is like listening to the beat of nature.
Riding the waves just like the little boy above gives e feeling being one with the wave! You feel the cool splash of water on you as it carries you to the shore. You feel the motion of the wave as your heart beats and join the wave's rhythm. Rhythm that brings fun, fun that is soothing, and fun that is relaxing.
Because of the tremendous magical feeling of being with the ocean and listening to how the forces of nature flow, it inspires many to have family celebration at the beach, such as weddings and anniversaries. Water is life. The ocean is almost synonymous to the celebration of life. There is so much to explore at the ocean. 
The joy of seeing dolphins passing by as you swim, of being with the fishes, of seeing crabs, starfish, sea weeds, corals, shells, among others is such an experience to behold. My niece for one would always jump with joy with each passing tide revealing bubbles on the sand, she would scoop the sand, and viola, little crabs on her hand! She would jump into the water right away whenever she sees fishes swimming, not really to catch the fish, but to experience how it is like swimming with them. It is like being in an aquarium, a giant aquarium without walls! The ocean teaches us so many things, it is no wonder why a lot of people would dream of a beach vacation.
One of the top family beach destination is US is Myrtle Beach. Myrtle beach is part of The Grand Strand, a 60 mile long strand of sandy white beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. Myrtle Beach Resorts are known the world over not only for their friendly beach atmosphere but also for their golf courses. In an Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resort, one can wake up to the inspiring beauty of sunrise. Though Myrtle Beach is a popular vacation destination during the summer, but Myrtle Beach Resort is busy all year, since the golf season at Myrtle Beach is year round. Myrtle Beach has gained the reputation of being one of America's most favored family destination. When you come to Myrtle Beach, you will know why! It is not just the beach, not just the golf, but the total recreation a family can experience.

  1. Hi Bets! That is a fresh looking starfish! I really want to explore the ocean life here. I look forward to the hike at the Abalone Cove for marine life and tidepools, next month.

  7. Chinese says, " to bully a mountain but not the ocean."

    Anyhow, Penang is an island, the beauty of sea and shore is there, in front of me everyday.

  8. When I was a young girl, my mom took us to the beach every weekend. It wasn't the ocean beach, we lived in upstate NY, but one of the many fresh water lakes. Now we live in Florida, and while we do go to the beach, on occasion, I am not a ocean swimmer. Maybe as my kids get bigger, and I am more comfortable with their swimming abilities, I will be more comfortable going. I love to sit and watch, and listen to the natural beauty of the ocean.

  11. I would be one of those people that would be filled with awe and wonder, and maybe a little bit of fear, if I ever get to see the ocean. I might try to stay far back from it until I get used to it.

  12. I love your beach pictures, they make me want to visit the beach. So far, I've only been to the Pacific Ocean, but some day I would like to see the Atlantic. Myrtle Beach would be fun!

  18. That starfish is really cool. The beach as you so eloquently expressed very poetic Betchai, is a simple pleasure and a way to enjoy nature's essence with family and friends.

  19. Hi Bets, I did not go closure to the tidepools, the waves were strong. Maybe some other time at the Abalone Cove. You might want to check out my post on the Earthquake Fault, would be interesting if you could include this in your next trip to the E. Sierra.

  21. I love the beach because the sounds of the surf speak to my soul. Don't know why, they just always have. I am never quite so peaceful in my heart as when I am near the surf.

  22. I love the beach because it reminds me of where I grew up, near the beach. The beach is calming, evenjust by looking at it. The waves are like "lullabies"

    As usual, great photos.

  23. Hi,Betchai!I don't know what it is about beaches that they seem to mesmerize me even though I'm not a floater hehe. My brothers and I are going to Camiguin this November after our kuya's wedding so we could all enjoy the beach and some nearby waterfalls too.Nature tripping would surely be fun for the entire family,I can hardly wait.=)

  24. Awesome photos! I'm not a beach lover though (I think three years of living on an island made me sick of water), so I turned down the chance to go to Myrtle beach this year...
