Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Burn my feet, swear, cool off in the ocean, cut my feet on rocks, swear again, burn my feet on the way back to my towel, swear, find that someone stole my wallet out of my shoes (perfect hiding place, right?), swear and leave.

Except for my stints in Alaska and Atlanta, I've almost always lived near the beach.

As a child I grew up about an hour from the beach, outside Savannah, Georgia. In high school, we lived about an hour from the beach in Houston, Texas. Now I live about 30 minutes from the beach in Mobile, Alabama.

I.HATE.THE.BEACH! Why do I always (except for Alaska) get stuck with humidity that you can cut with a knife and sunburns that sends me to the burn unit?!

WHY?!

The beaches in California are fine, I wouldn't mind those. Just get me outta the southern region REBOOT!

Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean that they hate you, or anyone else.

Go outside... in the sun? Are you mad?! I stay as far away from the beach as possible.

Love the beach, hate the water (fish defecate in there)
Like my summer condo there, on the ocean, with a big pool. Read, tan, sometimes dip in the pool to cool off.

SCUBA, there are way better shells and things that people lost on the bottom in the water than there are on the beach, and if nothing else I at least don't have to listen to the family complain.

If there's BBQ I might stay long enough for some of that but then I'm audi-there. I hate the beach.

I would love to swim or sunbathe...but this is the Pacific Northwest.

Beach combing and wading it is!

Did you go to Tybee Island? I spent every summer of my childhood there (both of my parents are from Savannah). Also, it's called sunscreen.
