10 Axioms of Going to the Beach

  1. The concept of tides can be very disturbing for a kid. No, a giant wave won’t come when the tide is low; yes, your sand castle will be destroyed when the tide creeps up.
  2. I have the strangest tan lines ever. This is what happens when you wear shorts and tank tops but rarely lay down on the beach under the sun.
  3. Churros and ice cream are the best snacks ever. Whoever claimed that sugar is evil can snack on healthy food in hell.
  4. It’s absolutely impossible to read a magazine when an overexcited kid wants to build sand castles.
  5. Sand gets everywhere. Sand is hard to get rid of when water pressure is low in the bathtub and shower schedules are difficult to set up when nine persons share a house.
  6. It’s a mistake to give a kid chocolate-filled cookies as a snack because they tend to fall in the sand and sandy chocolate-filled cookies aren’t exactly on top of the “best snacks ever”.
  7. Balls or flying objects will land on your towels.
  8. The sun will hide as soon as you arrive on the beach.
  9. Dipping your feet in the water after seeing sharks at the aquarium does feel a bit creepy even if you are pretty sure white sharks don’t come to sleepy village on the Atlantic coast.
  10. The water is too cold, the sand too coarse, the wind too strong and there is too much seaweed but everybody has a blast regardless.
