The beach is a cool place. It’s beautiful, the scenery is amazing, the water can be fun. I’m not a beach person though.
The beach is boring. I just don’t like laying there on a towel doing nothing for long periods of time. Why? The beach also has no shade.
I can sit around in a park soaking up the outside and enjoying the scenery, doing nothing, because I can spread my towel out underneath a tree and enjoy the shade. There is no shade at the beach. Being a very white guy, I just don’t enjoy being blasted by the sun for hours at a time.
For me, the beach is fun in small doses. I like meeting people there for a BBQ, or going in the evening once the sun has started to go down. I don’t like just going to the beach and hanging out. I prefer the park for that.
I like beach activities. I like volleyball, I like paddle boarding, I like doing active things. I don’t like hanging out at the beach for no reason.
So, I’m not a beach guy. I’m a park guy. Or a city guy. Or a mountains guy. Or a camping guy. Or a lake guy. Not a beach guy.
