It's summer time. Many of us love a good trip to the beach. But unfortunately, it never ends up as picturesque as we had hoped. Often times, it goes like this...

Beach hair don't care; knotted nest.


Beautiful tan skin; red as a lobster.


Graceful walks down the beach; walking like a baby giraffe across the shifting sand.


Having a nicely packed picnic lunch; handfuls of sand in every bite.


Driving 60 with the windows down and the radio blasting; stuck in a parking lot of traffic.



Meeting cute beach boys; being surrounded by twelve years olds and their parents.


Having the perfect beach playlist; your speaker dying.


Getting a nice break from the sun under the umbrella; chasing your inside out umbrella down the beach.


A refreshing dive into the waves; being knocked over and losing your bathing suit.


Finding that perfect shell; finding only the tiniest broken piece of it.


Crystal clear water; attack of the seaweed.


Getting that perfect Instagram; people walking through the background judging you.
