I lived in South Florida for eight years. During that period of time, I probably went to the beach just a handful of times. Yet, I’m a beach lover. I love the sound of the waves lulling me to sleep, or crashing and invigorating me. I love the feel of the sand underneath my toes, and underneath my entire body. I don’t need a chaise lounge. I can lie directly on the sand, even better with a towel underneath.
