Attempts were made to turn me into one of those nature-y outdoorsy sorts of people. Success was not the result of these endeavors.
The exception is the beach.
It has the following things going for it:
deliciously salty breeze
soothing sounds from crashing waves
an appealing blue/green color
possibility of whale/dolphin spotting
crucially, availability of bathrooms
Though I love being at the beach, the actual process of getting to the beach can be a hassle. One doesn't just decide to go, and then "poof" there you are laying supine while rays of sunshine embrace you in their warmth. Oh no. Things must be gathered. Bags must be packed.
