What is it about the beach? I’ve been trying to pin down what makes it so much more novel than any other vacation destination, but apparently it just is. And lots of people agree, judging by the fact that my favorite hotel is completely booked on the one weekend I want to visit.
Something about how the air is very crisp, there’s a different color palette that only comes from sun and sand, and the vastness of the ocean in front of you? (Strangely, California beaches were lacking that vast feeling, the ocean seems smaller with islands right off shore.)
