Renewing Your Bond
It’s a strange fact of life that tragedies bring with them a renewed appreciation for the things we love most. After the devastating oil spill in the Gulf, we can’t help but see all of our coastlines in a new light. They are beautiful and peaceful, strong and majestic, alluring and rejuvenating. But they are also fragile wonders to be handled with care. We want to encourage ocean lovers everywhere to renew your bond with the beach! Head to your favorite seaside place, nap in a hammock, cruise on a boat, surf on a board, watch birds take flight, build sand castles with the littlest beach bums in your family. Here’s a few ways we love life by the sea.

Feeding Your Appetite
Food tastes better at the shore. In fact, you’re practically required to indulge. Ice cream before noon? But of course!

Sea lions honk. Dolphins smile. Pelicans dive. Crabs crawl sideways—how great is that?

When you’re on “beach time,” everything is go with the flow. No schedules. No rushing. No stress.

Everybody smiles bigger when they have a sun-kissed glow on their cheeks.
