Temps here on Long Island were expected to soar near 100 degrees today so Chris and I planned on hitting the beach. Our original plan was to bike to the beach with our friends but we were unsuccessful this morning in finding a cooler you could where on your back so we ended up just driving to Lido Beach which actually worked out better because with Abby there just would have been too much to carry on our bikes.
Did I say that Lido Beach worked out better? After walking about a 1/2 mile from the parking lot to the beach we encountered this:
Eeeewwww!! An obscene amount of green nastiness covered the shoreline!! I have encountered seaweed but never like this, it was absolutely disgusting! I went in the water a couple of times because it was so hot and it did clear up once you passed a certain point but to get bad out you had to wade through seaweed………it was disgusting.
Abby wouldn’t even get close to it until we were at the beach for a couple of hours and then she made Chris carry her through it!
Now there are 2 things I dislike about the beach-the sand and the seaweed! I want to go back to the carribean where the water is crystal clear!
The beach pretty much wiped us out for the day and I managed to get burned because the spray sun tan lotion did not do it’s job and I am extremely upset. I am using sun tan lotion from now on because at least then I know I am covered…better safe than sorry.
