Going to the beach is one of my favorite things to do, especially when there are some decent waves. Unfortunately it was recently winter and the water has been very cold so I haven’t gone in quite a while. However my friend that I usually go with talked me into going this weekend.
We headed down to Hendry’s beach in the morning after getting a delicious breakfast at Spudnuts and Bagels. when we arrived there weren’t very many people besides the surfers and people at The Boathouse. The water was a bit to chilly when we first wanted to go in so we ended up taking a stroll down the beach quite a ways until the sun warmed us up more. To ease into the water we started skim boarding, and challenging each other to various tricks and maneuvers. One might think that skim boarding is hard, which it really isn’t but you sure do fall a lot.
After a few hours of chilling on the beach, getting tan, and messing around in the water, and playing some beach volleyball we sure were tired and hungry. fortunately The Boathouse is on the beachfront just a few yards from where we were. Since The Boathouse doesn’t serve sandy sun baked hooligans we were forced to eat from the small overpriced snack shack, but convenience and “quality” comes at a price I guess.
After my friend and finished our lunch we went on another walk down the beach looking for something to do. We weren’t feeling the best after the mediocre meal we just at minutes ago so we thought that non-vigorous activities would be the best idea, so we walked up to the Douglas Family Preserve. It was getting late by the point we got the the Preserve so we just walked around, explored, and eventually ended up at the end of the walkway just as the sun was going down. By then we were getting ready to get going so we headed back down to the beach to get picked up, and boy was the sunset beautiful.
