August 11th is National Play in the Sand Day. It’s still hot outside and summer is not over yet, which means you still have the opportunity to take a quick getaway. Who doesn’t love going to the beach? I live about twenty minutes away, and try to go whenever possible. Most weekends we get up early, pack a cooler full of snacks and drinks, and hit the road. We always bring a football, and randomly we’ll bring cornhole, bocce ball, or ladder golf (click on the links for further explanation). My friends and I will stay from about 11:00 AM to… whenever we’re too tired or too burnt to stay any longer. If you can’t get to a beach, why not head to the closest lake? Maybe go for a little camping trip? Tubing is also a great activity!
Wouldn’t it be nice to take a weekend and drive over to the closest sandy getaway? Pick a date and meet some friends, or take the family for a little rest and relaxation. The beach never gets old. If you have the opportunity to make the trip, then why not take it? Take a break, you deserve it.
