Beach Philosophy. Life is Like the Ocean Waves

Beach Philosophy Sometimes I think that life is like a beach. Not in the crass way that it is used in popular media, but in a philosophical way. The following is a bit of my beach philosophy. Here is some music to muse by, Seagull by Bad Company. The Waves Roll In Waves are constantly […]

Why Choose the Office and Work Instead of the Beach?

Lately the weather has been turning to summer. After a long, cold, bleak winter I am in need of the sun. In need of the sun, the beach and the freedom that comes from swimming in the ocean. Today the weather is beautiful. A sunny, high 70’s – 80’s day does not happen often in […]

Why the Beach?

What is it about the beach that captures us? People will work for years to be able to afford a trip to a tropical and exotic beach. Why? What makes someone live in a cave at the beach? What makes a beach bum? It’s just water and sand. We can get that at home. Take […]

I want to go to the Beach. A Warm Beach. The Caribbean

I really miss the beach. Wow! I haven’t written in a month. I can’t believe that. I’ve been so busy with work moving to a new office downtown, more and more clients, and just life taking over. I’m sure that everyone reading this understands how life can sometimes just get in the way of life. […]

Ten Commandments of Being a Beach Bum

I found this on the Travel Zone. The Ten Commandments of being a beach bum. 1. Thou shall pick the perfect beach. It’s not that hard really. Baja California in Mexico is one of the most diverse, and beautiful places to beach bum in. The beaches are made of fine white sand, the seafood is […]

Who Owns The Beach?

I saw this on the Honolulu Advertiser. So I thought I’d reprint it and see what people think. Should anyone own the beach? This past August a group of homeowners in Kailua installed a 6-foot tall gate with a combination lock! at the end of their private road to stop people from using the right-of-way […]

No Cells Phones, PDA’s or Laptops on the Beach

That’s right. Elite Island Resorts has banned cell phones, PDA’s and laptops from being used within a half a mile of the beach. Sound bad? I don’t think so.I love it. Think of laying there on the warm sand, the sun beating down, the waves crashing. Maybe a few seabirds crying far overhead. So relaxing. […]

The Ultimate Real Beach Bum.

I just love these stories. Guys who live the real beach bum life. Bruno Battaglia, though, is probably the most dedicated beach bum I’ve seen. Just about every day for the past 4o years, he has been going to the beach. He brings something to drink, a chair (new one every year), a rag for […]

Vacation at Home? Someone’s Smoking Crack.

I read this article that was a rebuttal to an article she had seen about how you can have an exotic vacation at home. I agree with the writer of the article. This is a load of starfish poo. Isn’t a vacation supposed to be away from home? What does Noah Webster say; Main Entry: […]

What is a Beach Bum? Living Like a Beach Bum.

What is a Beach Bum? What is a beach bum? Is it type 1, someone who is really just homeless and living on the beach? Is it type 2, someone who takes extended vacations on the beach? Or is it type 3, someone who works and lives on the beach? I like to think that […]
