So I was really excited to find the Saturday9's meme to be beach themed.... since that is one of the things that makes me the most happy! :)
1. Do you plan to be at the beach this summer?
Heck yes, I will in Oceanside/Carlsbad this coming monday and Taylar and I are going to be total beach bums :) Alright, we'll do some surfing :)
2. Do you have a favorite beach?
Hmmm not really because I've been mostly to lakes and not beaches. I do love the beach off of Lido, Italy though. Beautiful horizon and good memories with my family
3. How old were you on your first beach trip?
REAAALLLY little. Little enough that I had to go to the Hospital because I ate everything I found on the beach because I didn't know better. Don't worry, I don't do that anymore. :D
4. Did your folks own or rent a cottage at the beach?
We did up in Canada a couple of times, but we're not that ritzy to have a beach house. I wish!
5. Have you or would you bring your kids to the same beaches you went to as a kid?
I would love to! This is my plan if I ever actually do have children... They are probably going to start swimming before they walk, they will own a surfboard before they own a bike, and they will probably be able to hold their breath longer in an underwater challenge than on land. In essence... they will be complete little water babies. :)
6. What type of bathing suit do you wear at the beach?
I'm on a mission right now to find the perfect retro 50's skirted swimdress in red and I found two (1 and 2) but they are both in the $80+ range. boo :-\. I like bikinis but I don't have the body yet for it. Plus I like a little modesty and freedom to move around without worrying if you're going to pop out of your top when a wave comes crashing in or when you're about to dive for that sand volleyball. I'm not just a lay out type of beach girl. I like moving :)
7. Do you have favorite food you like to eat at the shore?
I like to stay hydrated. But cookouts are always fun :) so bbq food... well actually more fresh cool fruity stuff to cool a hot day
8. Do you have a favorite drink you like at the shore?
9. When is the next time you will be beach bound?
