When I was a youngster, I used to live out on the West Coast where the climate was warmer and the ocean was close.
I used to go out to the beach with friends and family all the time.
Of course, we were always told to wear our sunscreen or we would be burned. My younger siblings often complained that there was not enough air conditioning, even though we would usually have the climate control system working in the car on the way to the beach. I told them to just play in the water if they felt like they needed air conditioning. The water I explained was a perfect way for providing cooling to the body. They were happy when they saw that I was right and then often played in the water more often when heading to the beach. It was just a shame when we eventually moved to another state where we have no beaches anywhere close. We have some lakes around that we like to visit, but it’s not the same to be honest. I especially miss the sounds of all the ocean birds and the crashing of the waves to the sand. The lake we usually go to doesn’t really have waves like that, just some rippling water on windy days. We still like to go swimming in the water though and sometimes we just have a BBQ or a nice picnic. Sometimes we will even bring a portable AC unit along to help us keep cozy on the warmer days. We will typically set up a tent when using the cooling unit, and that keeps us nice and cool.
