Aloha Friday



It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

Have you ever been to a beach? How often do you go?
I have read about several people that have never been to a beach. I guess if you live in the middle of the US or something, that would be the norm. We go many times each year and I never get tired of it. We USUALLY go to the beach where my family owns a place, but we're going to a different one that I haven't been to in a really long time next week for my birthday.


Pin It!

I grew up by a beach. Now I only get to go when I'm visiting my parents.

Yes, I have been to the beach many times before. Lots of options near here and have been to several beach areas along the Atlantic Ocean over the years. BTW - Great job on the graduation cake!

Oh, we LOVE the beach! Growing up in New England afforded us the opportunity to grow up going regularly. My parents had a vacation home in Maine when I was young and so we spent many summer weeks and/or weekends up there! Now my husband and I will go a couple of times a year, but it gets tricky with work and everything. I love it, though. The smell, the sounds, the salt air...it's my happy place.

I grew up 5 steps from the beach in NY. I live about 10 minutes away in any direction to a beach now, in FL. And we don't go at all enough, Maybe three times a year... And I LOVE the beach imagine that.

Whenever the weather cooperates! Though we've also been known to go in the fall time, bundled up just enjoying the scenery.

I grew up and live in the Midwest, so no beaches for me as a kid! But I have traveled and been able to visit many lovely beaches. Last summer my husband and I went on a Caribbean cruise and enjoyed our time on some fabulous beaches, including Megan's Bay which is on the list of top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world!

Oh gosh I couldn't imagine never going to a beach! I practically live at the beach here in Florida and go almost every weekend in the summer. :)

I've been to some beaches in California and some along the Oregon Coast. I am going to go to Corpus Cristi for our anniversary next week and get to spend more time on the beach.

as a red head, i burn easily... so we do not go that often!

mommablogsalot said...

I've lived on both the East Coast and West so I've been to several beaches but haven't been in awhile since moving to the midwest.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

We live pretty close to the coast, so I would say we probably go to the beach at three times during the summer. We almost always take a three or four day vacation to Florida to hit the beautiful beaches there:)

Dawnette Thomas said...

We try to get to the beach twice a year - in the spring and fall.

Krystyn said...

We maybe go once every 2-3 years. Once the girls are older, I think we will go more often.

Shelly said...

We love the beach but just can't afford to spend the money for a hotel to get to the ocean (it's about 4 hours drive each way).

I don't live extremely close to a beach so I only get there when I'm on a vacation so it's every couple of years!

Rach said...

My nearest beach is an hour drive away, we go at least 3 times a year

Mighty M said...

We go maybe once a year. :)

Stacie's Madness said...

we have a beach right here in our backyard (practically) and we really don't go that often.

LeesaWho said...

Right now I'm in Columbus, OH, but I've lived on the east and west coasts. I've visited beaches all over this country and a few others. So, so sad what's happening in the Gulf right now.

Jess said...

Love the beach!! Whenever we get to Cali we go :)

S Club Mama said...

If we hadn't lived in Virginia I would have never been to a real beach (we live in the middle of the US). However, I've been to Virginia Beach twice. I will probably never see a beach again in my life though. :D

TXsunlover said...

We don't live anywhere near a beach but we've been to the Gulf Coast beaches several times. We love to hang out at our local lakes.

Jennifer H said...

Yes, I live about an hour away and my Dad lives 5 min's so we have 2 reasons to go. :) We go more often during spring/summer months of course so maybe on average once or twice a month.

Becca said...

I live in Santa Barbara...about 5 minutes from the beach. I rarely go!

kailani said...

I received an error message with my first comment so I'm trying again . . . just thought I'd let you know in case you see two comments from me. :-)

We went to the beach on Memorial Day and try to take the girls at least once a month if not more often.

JamericanSpice said...

We don't have a beach here in LA so I don't get to go, if we did I'd go a few times a year.

Whimsical Creations said...

Yes, I go to the beach. We typically go a few times in the summer.

Kailani Nicole said...

I saw this post and remember the songs played on the radio on Friday's, "It's Aloha Friday no work 'till monday..." We were stationed in Hawaii for 4 years (husband is a military pilot) and we went to the beach every day. We are now stationed in TX and the beach here is okay but nothing will every compare to our favorite beach, Lanikai. We even named our daughter Kailani b/c we loved the beach so much
