If Beaches Could Talk

by Cheryl Tapp and Linda Todd ©2012, Paperback, ISBN: 978-1-935232-49-0, 48 pp
 

Having “sand in our shoes” since birth, my sister and I felt compelled to write

a book about beach etiquette. After spending summers at the shore, our

parents decided that it was time to leave the sultry heat of Philadelphia and

make Atlantic City our home. Along with our parents and older brother this

began our new life.


I was six years old and my sister, Cheryl, was an infant

(born with a bucket and shovel in her hand) when the move was made and

our days on the beach began. After having to teach our own children how to

behave properly on the beach, we felt a need to share our concerns with all

beach goers. Living two blocks from the beach and then moving offshore,

the daily drive to the beach was a necessity as well as a pleasure in our lives.



Due to countless hours of special cherished time on the beach, we feel we

have the expertise to write this book. This labor of love has taken ten years to

complete and we are delighted to share our finished product with you.

When arriving at the beach it is important to find a perfect spot for you and your

family. This can be done easily by following these simple directions:


1. Look for an empty space that will fit your family, friends, or maybe just

you… if you are lucky enough to have a quiet beach day to yourself.


2. Make sure you leave at least a beach towel difference between you and

your neighbors.


3. If your friends are joining you later, save spots for them so they are not

invading your neighbor’s beach party.


Sitting too close to someone at the beach is like sharing a table at a restaurant

with strangers. You did not invite them to eat dinner with you and you are not

inviting them to sit with you at the beach.


Umbrellas are a great retreat from the sun, but please do not put up your umbrella

when the wind is so fierce that it could actually take Dorothy to Oz. Your umbrella

will be like the flying monkeys and could be hazardous to those around you. Be

a wizard and make sure you anchor your shade securely in the sand.


A cell phone note – A major pet peeve for beach goers is being able to hear

someone’s conversation because they are too close and they think the person

they are speaking to has lost their hearing. Be just as considerate as if you were

in the supermarket line, doctor’s office, public transportation, elevator, on the

treadmill at the gym, and any other public place.
