As I mentioned yesterday summer means something special for each of us, some love cabins and some love cottages, especially if they are by the sea.

I have been lucky enough to live my entire life by water. In fact many of my favorite times were spent frolicking on the beach with my siblings, or walking on the beach with my husband watching the dolphins at play in the surf. Not to mention trips with friends to summer beach house rentals where we ate, drank, swam and relaxed for days at a time with not a care in the world.
A beach house need not be grand or over the top, it just needs a few essentials. Pull up a chair and lets discuss the “perfect” beach house. A beautiful view is always nice, as is lots of comfy seating for friends and family.

Of course a great kitchen to whip up a few fruity drinks and some tasty morsels is a must too. After all, who doesn’t love a fruity cocktail?

Perhaps a bunk rooms for all of the kids and a beautiful room with a view for me!

Aside from that I really do think I would need more than that, after all I am here for the sea, sand and the sun.

What do you like about the beach? My favorite thing to do at the beach is to walk in the water and to look for treasures, shells, urchins, sand dollars, and starfish, maybe some driftwood?
Then I like to sit in my chair and read, and try not to burn. The sun sadly is not my friend, I have very fair skin and I always burn and get lots of freckles.
Tell me your beach stories. Where do you go? Do you own or rent? On the ocean, or a lake?
I hope that you have a fabulous day wherever you are, at the beach, on the shore or at work.
