Everyone loves the beach. Being on the beach makes everything better. Feel that warm sea breeze, sand between the toes and suddenly, all worries seem smaller under blue skies. I have always said that a bad day on the beach is better than a good day in office, especially since there is no such thing as a bad day on the beach.

While waiting for our next trip to the coast, I have found these great quotes. Now, next time you or I am there snapping another gorgeous photo, we shall have some sparkling words to put with it. Or perhaps these sayings will inspire us to think of our own.

And while on a quotation roll, here are links to my collections of beautiful quotations about adventure, hiking, rainbows and rain – do check them all out and enjoy some new angles on our beautiful world.
