We had a great time at the beach yesterday. It was a beach we had never been to and frankly though I have been beachy in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maine I never knew New Hampshire even had beaches. Even though Portsmouth is one of my favorite places in the whole world and yes I knew that it is PORTS- MOUTH and there are many boats in ocean water there, I just didn’t think about the beach option. But it makes sense doesn’t it? Umm…. duh?
It’s been a while since I have been to a public beach and it amazes me that so many people parade around nearly naked. I don’t like feeling naked. What if one of my bits and pieces is hanging out and I don’t know it? Am I the only one that worries about this? My teenage daughter was trying to tell me in a nice way that I was the most untanned person there. Umm…thanks?
I guess they were into green yesterday.
I loved that they scoured the rocks and found sea creatures. They swam in the thickly seaweedy waters which has a tangy small that makes me happy in a gross smell kind of way. It’s not azure waters with powder white sands, if you are used to that you would see these beaches and think negative thoughts.
There was even a freckled sea gull named Seamus.
At least I think that was his name. He and his thug friends stole a bag of food from the people next to us. Instead of scaring them off I opted to take pictures.
But then a lady behind me made her kids run them off and she looked at me funny and her kids kicked sand on my blanket so I looked at them funny. Then we got in a fist fight and sharks came and everyone ran for the hills.*
