We did the beach this past weekend and loved every minute of it. The Robinator found a brand new hotel that allowed doggies to stay and we packed up and rolled out to Florida! We bypassed the popular beaches for a state park beach because we knew alcohol wasn't permitted so the people we'd like to avoid probably wouldn't be there since the Rangers patrolled the state beaches. This proved to be an excellent tactic because we ended up on a super nice and clean beach that was very family oriented. There were lots of parents with kids and lots of couples just wanting a quiet day on the beach.
We took most of our own food so I didn't have to worry about not being able to find food and, since our suite had a nice kitchen...it all worked out well.
The best part about it was that we did absolutely NOTHING! Just straight up lazy the entire time! When's the last time you did absolutely nothing?
