The Queen's Meme #42 ~ The Beach Meme
Welcome to The Queen's Meme #42 ~ We're going to the beach!

I apologize for the lateness of this meme posting. I was shopping for a bathing suit. I kid you not. More on that later. Right now....let's hit the beach.
#42 The Beach Meme

1. When is the last time you saw the ocean?
A very long time ago.

2. Where is your favorite stretch of beach shoreline?
Gulf Shores

3. Are you planning a beach vacation this year?
We don't vacation very much anymore. We are home bodies. Besides we have no one to take care of the back 40 and the animals when we are gone.

4. Bikinis or one-piece?
Now a one-piece

5. Do you sunbathe or sit under an umbrella?
I do not sunbathe it is bad for you. Don't forget your sunscreen.

6. Have you ever been to a nude beach?
Yes, in Italy everyone is nude. hahahaha except moi.

7. Favorite activity at the beach while on vacation?
Building sand castles and and shell hunting.

8. Condo, hotel or cottage rental?
What about camping?

9. What beach in the whole wide world would you like to visit for the first time?
I hate to tell you this, but I am not that into beaches. I really prefer mountains.

10. Did you ever have a special romantic time at the beach?
Not a single "From Here To Eternity" moments. LOL!

11. Tell us about a favorite beach memory.
When I was in high school,my best friend's dad worked for the trains. Judy and I would go via train to New Orleans and along the gulf route to Destin,Fla. We stayed with her brother every year. He was a bachelor and and officer in the Air Force. He had a GTO convertable and we thought this was so cool. This was when Destin was still quaint and charming. For two young girls, it was exciting and so much fun.

I love the ocean and the mountains. I figure if I ever retire, it'll be in a place I can have both.

I haven't shopped for a bathing suit in years. Good for you!

I'd rather be near water than anywhere else. I guess it's the boating in me that makes it that way.

I'm waiting on the post about the new swimsuit. Just saying.

Have a terrific day Pam. Big hug. :)

Anyone with a swimsuit in in Italy will stand out from all the other unclothed ones!

Fun memory of Destin! I prefer mountains too, but my hubby loves the Gulf and I do enjoy going - but I would choose a range of mountains before a new beach.

Before hubs and I met, I was looking for somewhere to camp with my sons (then 9 and 6). There was a campground near St. Mary's Georgia (Atlantic Coast). I got all excited, noticed they had a photo gallery. So glad I went there! Something didn't seem right, something was missing - like clothing!Thank goodness the pictures were from afar and a little blurry! Camping meets beach meets clothing optional!

Oh that beach memory of a quaint Florida beach was marvelous ... Convertibles and beaches sort of mesh. Hope you find a mountain lake and someone to take care of the animals and back 40

I miss the ocean and my walks on the beach every day. But I am enjoying the mountains again. If you love mountains you should come for a visit, we have lots of them.

Very nice Pam. Well, I live about 10 minutes from the beach, so I have access to it any time. Thank you dear one for sharing. Blessings.

I love the ocean and beach, we live only just over an hour from a beach so we're quite lucky, though I'd love to live closer. :)
