Last week we covered ice cream, so it only seemed appropriate that this week we should go to the beach. After all, what would those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer be without the beach? Enjoy your week, and remember: life’s a beach!
Amazing Aerials of Beaches Around the World [PICS]
These photos from the Weather Channel provide a different perspective on our view of the beach. They should – they were taken by photographer Gray Malin from a door-less helicopter flying over the ocean. Thanks to Monigle (@Monigle), who rightly points out that the Weather Channel is very good at extending its brand.
Before the Bikini: Rare Vintage Beach Photos [PICS]
Huh? Another dose of the Weather Channel? Just shows they’ve got it going on in a very seasonal way, wouldn’t you agree Lighthouse Inn Tybee (@RockinPorch – a bed and breakfast near Savannah Beach, GA)?
Chinese Wedding Photos[PICS]
In China, it’s not unusual for couples to have their photos taken before the wedding – at an outside location like a beach. Just might work, don’t you think Goodbye Blighty (@GoodbyeBlighty)?
South Africa’s Beach Invasion
No, these and other beaches around the world aren’t being invaded by aliens or zombies, but by plastic waste. Yeck…but thanks to Don Jacyshyn (@djacyshyn) for reminding us to be very careful about what we leave behind after a day at the beach.

If this doesn’t get you in the mood to go to the beach, you might want to check yourself for a pulse.
