This is Sandy Beach and it’s in Juneau, Alaska. During the winter the water is just above freezing so right around 32 degrees. It’s a great place to walk your dog. Even though the beaches in Alaska may not be as pleasant as the ones in California I still love them because of how peaceful they are. The crisp air, the crunchy snow, the few people. The coldness scares some people inside, but for me I always enjoy layering up and exposing myself to the winter air.
The beaches in Alaska and California are very different, and I’m sure that many people would prefer the Californian Beaches rather than the Alaskan ones. In Santa Barbara there are lots of great beaches. I especially like Butterfly Beach, and Thousand Stairs. They are both relatively quiet and very beautiful. I absolutely love going to the beach, to swim and lay in the sand to get “tanner” even though I don’t tan very easy. You can read, play frisbee, listen to music and just relax.
The beach is a great way to get away from school and homework. Even during the middle of winter beaches in California can be full of people surfing or just hanging out. Also, if you don’t want to get all sandy, just biking along the beach is very refreshing and it’s interesting to see all the different people.
Where is your favorite beach you’ve ever been to?
