Piece Driftwood

The beach is not just for children and adolescents. The whole family can enjoy the coast provided, of course, no "elbow to elbow with tourists. You also can do more than just a tan (or sunburn). Get up and get active with some of these suggestions. The old favorites are always fun and are therefore still frequent. You can throw a foam Frisbee, playing with a beach ball (Nice, as deflate for easy transport and storage), surfing inner tube (each more cheaply and more difficult to achieve, but you can deflate them). Do not forget your sand sculpture and sand castle building tools. Here are some suggestions to consider, to animate your beach vacation.

1. Driftwood Collecting

Especially if you are creative trend, this may be not only a single, but also profitable pastime. What patterns or ways of doing floating wooden forms evoke in your mind? What would you look like when painted or polished? How could mount or samples?

2. Collect shells

Weather beach a popular pastime with children and adults alike can still serve as an interesting activity for kids (or you). More so if you're in a new beach, foreign or strange, that it may offer some unique surprises. Make a collage, a screen or a bow shadow of your best finds when you get home.

3. Catch crabs and crustaceans

We used walk among the waves of the Chesapeake Bay, with a meter-square frame screen window to trap all kinds of small crabs, crustaceans, worms sand, and even small fish. It was an interesting series of "catch" and provide endless hours of simple fun for me and my brothers. With eleven brothers and younger sisters, but also kept us out of the "problems" or at least reasonably. Sometimes, a fisherman who purchase our "capture" for use as bait, much to the benefit of local suppliers of ice cream.

4. Surf Fishing

There are all kinds of folding several pieces rod reel tape kits that can easily pack in a briefcase or store in a car trunk. Whip it out, regulations and local conditions permit, and try your hand at whatever the regional water supply. Some surprisingly large catches can be done in less than two feet of water. Just put on a mask and snorkel diving Wade in waist-deep water, standing still for a few minutes with his face in the water. Often you'll love it by the number and size of fish and other sea creatures you'll see all around below the surface. In many tropical waters, it's like being in an aquarium.

5. Bait catch

As mentioned above, bait can often be sold to local fishermen (or use your own). Use a cast net, walking along the knee-deep surf with an old window screen and a bucket. Small fish, crustaceans, Sandworms, small eels and crabs are susceptible to this method. Be sure to check local regulations first. Keeping alive and fresh in a bucket partially filled with water.

6. Relax or get a "surf massage"

Soak and soothe aching bones with those of a relaxing massage. In tourist areas there are many venues that offer this right on the beach. Be sure to negotiate prices before services are rendered to avoid price gouging. Another alternative is to let the sea and surf "massage" as you were there. It's free and waves never gets tired or charges you. Sit facing the sea with your legs extended. Move forward until the waves will cover up to the navel. Reposition forward, backward or to other changes such as changes in surfing.

7. Go walking

We have already identified as a "best activity" Exercise, walking is almost always nice. Walking on dry sand gives you more of a workout "than walking on the sand is still damp from the waves receded. For maximum Huff and puff, try walking in the surf itself. A normal rate of walking is a mile and a half of fifteen minutes, so a thirty minute walk is a good exercise for the day. Fifteen minutes out, fifteen minutes back to the starting point should you do very well.

8. Observe the nature or people watch

Okay so if you're alone in a "do nothing for a while" mood then people see nature or based on where you are. Choose a point of view and note what happens around you. The couple is married or dating? What do you think they do for a living? What can you tell about them to see? What animals, birds and marine life are common where you are? Are there sharks? Dolphins? Crabs? Squid or unusual forms of marine life? The haunting fauna of the area? What about snakes? I was more than a little surprised to learn from a local resident that cats are a big problem in Acapulco. As I have already paid more attention during my comings and goings around town I realized that they were almost everywhere. That could be particularly troublesome at night.

These and other imaginative activities can help turn a "standing in the sun and burn" day at the beach in a much more relaxing, creative and stimulating you and the family. Try some of these as an alternative to the usual "do nothing" day.
