When I was a teenager I went to the beach in Santa Monica almost every day in the summer. What a fun place! Eating hot dogs on a stick and looking at the amazing men and women at Muscle Beach (though they did over do the muscles a bit). They swung on the bars over the sand, in love with their own bodies. But now I go to the Jersey Shore where au naturel has its place. Hurricane Sandy put a dent in things for a while, but the Shore is back. Love it! Jumping up and down in the waves, I feel just as young and happy as I ever did. You can take California out of the girl and put her in Jersey, and it's just fine. Enjoy the summer!
