Confession: I think the beach is boring.
Trying to not get sunburnt, trying to not get sand in places it shouldn't be. The water is too salty for proper swimming. It's too bright to look at a screen, which for me, precludes doing anything creative.
People watching can be fun, but I don't want to be the creepy guy who stares. Or the cynic who judges.
But... the daughter LOVED IT.
The beach became a bit less boring when I joined her in jumping up and down in puddles. Peppa Pig is not wrong.
