    The good and the bad

    The bad……..

    I’ll start with the beaches in the UK. Like the country, dark and dank most of the year.



    When tourists think about visiting a country with nice beaches the UK wouldn’t be on the list. Who would like to visit a beach to see pasty fat people in swimsuits? Other pasty fat people?

    Waters too cold. But it's not as bad as lake swimming in canada. People try and convince themselves that its not actually that cold. But it is. And anyone outside canada would never consider getting in

      The good……..

      Punta Mita, Mexico

      There are more than a handful of nice beaches there.



      I was on one at the St. Regis.



      Just north of the St. Regis there’s a friendly little beach town called Sayulita https://www.sayulita.com/ that also has a nice beach. http://www.sayulitabeach.com/map-you...orth-sayulita/

        Hawaii. So many beaches and I’ll go over some.



        We spent about a month in Hawaii and about 3 weeks of that time was on Hawaii’s North Shore: https://www.polynesia.com/blog/north-shore-beach-guide

          Waikiki beach: https://www.best-of-oahu.com/waikiki-beach.html

          Was there once but just for a couple pictures (not mine below). Went into town for something. The part of the beach we did visit was beautiful.

            We also had a chance to visit Punalu'u black sand beach while in Hawaii: https://volcano-hawaii.com/attractio...uu-beach-park/



            If I remember correctly, I wrote something in the sand and took a picture of it.

              You see these photos of many Mediterranean beaches, and what a big so what. They are overcrowded, often thin as ribbons, and in some places even pebble beaches. How glam.
              Admittedly I am from Australia, but I would not even cross the road for these places- never mind the world.

                was in Australia recently but never made it to the beach. Smokey

                But you do have a beautiful reef just off the coast we were able to visit.

                Thin beaches are something you have to adjust to. Growing up in Florida I never saw many.

                On weekends is was difficult to find a parking space

                    ^When I was old enough to travel by bus I went to South Beach, when for the most part it was a Nursing Home Community. They would not visit the beach but would watch from the porch. However, there were old fishermen on the pier. They were great and would watch out for us (hooks and sharks) as we would jump from that pier.

                      And when I started driving I was able to get a little further north…….

                      Just one of many. Hatteras, North Carolina



                      During my first visit, one morning a friend and I woke and walked out to the beach to check the waves. Two girls our age were in the water. About chest-high.

                      In the waves we saw a nice size shark and started yelling at the girls from shore to get out of the water. They didn’t pay any attention after repeated warnings. With the waves breaking along the shore they might not of been able to hear us but they could see us waving at them (and pointing at the direction of the shark) and I think they thought we might have been trying to flirt with them.

                      We entered the water and kept yelling at them to get out and as we got closer to them. Finally they did turn around at the right time and saw the shark in the face of the wave.

                      They flew right by us to shore.

                        Ocho Rios, Jamaica

                        Visited Jamaica twice when I was young. The first time was memorable. Doing some things I shouldn’t have been doing. Lucky I wasn’t caught.

                        Second time with a girlfriend. Got some great pictures.

                        Ocho Rios isn’t anything like I remember now. It has grown so much. Good for them and bad for young tourists like I used to be. I am sure they still have some beautiful beaches.



                        Maybe I can get the girlfriend to visit with me but to do a dive.
