There are many reasons to dislike the beach. The sand gets into cracks on your body you had no idea you had. The sand contains microbes that will give you dysentery. The sand makes virtually impossible to eat or drink anything effectively. OK, so maybe sand is the only thing to hate about the beach, though it's a double edged sword since the sand can also be shaped into castes (why always castles?) and it feels good underneath your feet (unless it burns the heck out them). I just like the warmth and the knowing that you can cool down by going into the water, unless you are in the Gulf of Mexico; that water is like hot tub.
