I’m pretty sure all the ladies have encountered a shark in the sea at some point.
No, I don’t mean the kind that have gills, fins and razor sharp teeth.
I’m talking about the less dangerous human equivalent, lurking in shallow waters, circling it’s desired target area, waiting for you to get in so they can pounce with their charming chat up lines, banking on a reduced chance of you making a quick getaway.
Beware of Coconuts
Whilst lounging under that beautiful coconut tree, just pray a coconut does not release itself and knock you out cold or worse, as this would be most unfortunate.
Yes there is hidden danger on that perfect beach.
I usually freeze a bottle of water to take out with me the next day – staying hydrated is a ‘must’ in tropical heat.
Now don’t get me wrong, fruity cocktails and tropical drinks are delicious too, but you’ll thank yourself for the water as well.
When we’re hydrated, we feel less irritable and tired, more alert and generally healthier.
One of the best places to watch a sunset is by the ocean, the backdrop of the sea makes the view all the more exquisite.
What is it about sunsets (and the sunrise) that we never tire of watching, that mesmerises us every time, as though it was the first time wed ever seen something so beautiful?
I think Jenna Snyder puts it perfectly on her blog: 10 Reasons To Watch The Sunrise And Sunset

#beachbanter I like your picture of the palm tree. I had a dream of sharks last night. (That’s real sharks.) Mind you I had watched Tarzan, and the crocodile scene must have left it’s mark!

I took my girlfriend to the Carribean.
No – she wanted to go.
Never had a proper beach holiday, I don’t think I could go two weeks doing nothing! But I would like a day or two to relax by the pool or on the sand
Lol, depending on where you go, you’ll probably find plenty of excursions/activities/ day trips/walks/tours/sports etc.. so that you can explore the country and learn more about it/local people/culture etc etc..to keep you busy, just be sure to research your destination before you book and plan the things you want to do in advance!
T so wish I was at the beach right now, It’s so cold x
Me too, #Januaryblues ☺

I love to walk along the waters edge early in the morning when the beach is deserted stopping for coffee and a pastry at a bar.
Sounds like bliss 😊

I’m a bit scared of the sea now but when I went to Egypt I must admit the fish in the Red Sea were out of this world xxx
