Friday Five: Beach Trip

Here's the F5 prompt this week: In honor of summer, please share your own beachy memories, plans, and dreams with a "Beach Trip" Friday Five.

1. Ocean rocks, lake limps? Vice versa? Or "it's all beautiful in its own way"?
In terms of "doing stuff" (e.g. boating, water skiing, swimming), I prefer the lake. However, in terms of "sight and sound", I like the ocean best. In fact, this is not too far from where we live:
(That picture is from wikimedia. I'm traveling today and all of my Cannon Beach pictures are on the 'main computer' at home.)

2. Year round beach living: Heaven...or the Other Place?
As long as I have my sunscreen (my dermatologist is such a nag after my little melanoma in situ), it would be heaven.

3. Any beach plans for this summer?
I'm sure the Empty Nest Hiking Club will do a coastal hike.

4. Best beach memory ever?
Cutting my foot on a piece of glass and requiring stitches. Oh wait, that was the worst one. Actually outside of that one, just about all my beach memories are good ones!

5. Fantasy beach trip?
Going to the southern coast of either France or Italy. Of course this trip also involves some 'fantasy' eating.

Bonus: Share a piece of music/poetry/film/book that expresses something about what the beach means to you.
The soundtrack for On Golden Pond works!

Mmmm. Fantasy beach with fantasy eating. I'm good to go.

Yeah, I'm up for France and It'ly, with the fantasy eating. And fantasy wine drinking!

fantasy eating for sure... are you guys coming to the cabin for supper???

Jan said...

Sounds like fun.

You needing stitches reminded me of the time CB and I were newly married and on a North Carolina beach, and I got stuck there with a fishing hook between my toes! This was on the Outer Banks, and we had to find a doctor who cut the hook out and stitched me up. So you and I have those stitches in common!

fantasy eating! of course! tell us about your fantasy food!

Diane said...

oh, and the Loons on Golden Pond! Yes!

I thought for sure your favorite beach memory would be the boat ride to molokini crater. THAT was truly heaven.

If you want to watch Il Postino between netflicks movies let me know and you can take it home to watch - it's a good film.

Oh wow, forgot about the boat ride to molokini crater! I'm getting seasick just thinking about it!

And yes, we should borrow Il Postino!
