Frolicking where the continent meets the ocean in oztraylia is to some an essential part of life. Indeed, when I was a little tacker in NZ, we lived on a cliff overlooking a beach at Browns Bay and constantly had sand betwixt my nethers. I must be getting old but there are only a few things I dislike about going to the beach these days: Surf [breaks, rips and pulls you about], Salt water [stings the eyes, dries out the skin, wrecks the hair, rusts the panel van], Sand [abrasive in crevaces], Sun [it burns us precious, natural light ...aaaagggghhh] and Surf Lifesavers [who merely remind me how far my shape has deviated from theirs]. All that being taken as read, I went down to the ocean, paddled, then swam and allowed waves to break upon me, and enjoyed it [please keep that to yourself, else my typical grouchy fascade will suffer irreparable damage] - thx Barbz for the encouragement, and no, I have not been working out :P.
There is something magical about walking on the beach, and she who must be obeyed and I did that also, into the setting sun, dodging stranded bluebottles, collecting "special" shells, discarding them moments later and ignoring winging kids. Fish and chips and a short bushwalk - does an outing get much better? [I do not think so]. Top off with icecream [coldrock exotica with mixins] and the only thing left to do is drive home. Burleigh Heads is nice, must go back the the beach again soon, particularly while the water is so pleasant.

shriting (v.) To form poor, unreadable symbols or letters on a surface such as paper. It often is described as writing to the one who wrote the symbols, but to others it is considered to be shitty. This form of writing is often so bad that others must ask the writer about each individual squiggle.
