You forgot sand flies - mmmm lunch! Are you O-positive? I like O-positive.

Other than this minor nitpick, pure poetry.

The best beaches are the ones with all the "No-Trespassing" signs. Since I'm a Morlock, I don't do to the beach during the day though, only at night when all the drunks have decided to go skinny-dipping. Drunk People + Dark Turbulent Water = Quality Entertainment.

Ocean water is very murky, which means there could be absolutely any kind of creature swimming straight toward you and you'd never know until it was too late.
My thoughts exactly. That's what the gun's for, right? To shoot all the fish?

Bury the kids under a huge mountain of sand then drive back home.

the nicest beaches tend to be the private ones, mostly because theyre devoid of this kind of stuff. that and (if youre lesley nielson from that infamous episode of creepshow) you can use it to bury your enemies.

This perfectly sums up why I hate going to the beach.

Also, as soon as you go out above your head, you have no way of knowing how deep the water is. Maybe you're floating over some terrible gash in the earth's crust, miles and miles deep. Just imagine what might be coming up out of the blind bowels of the earth with its mouth open as you stupidly tread water?
And this perfectly sums up why I hate the ocean with a fiery passion, articulated much better than I ever could. Thank you, Max, thank you.

I'll never forget the look my father gave me as he ran up the wet sand screaming, legs covered in blue men-o-war jellyfish, as he was told by my mother to "be more careful" since he nearly stepped on our crappy sand castle. That article said exactly what his face said that day.

I love the beach and go there with my family whenever I can. It's more the human condition I'm writing about, and for laughs.

Zhukov's father's experience fits right in. It isn't the beach or the jellyfish or the reprimand or the sandcastle that make those moments per se, but the state of being alive in one's skin on earth with other people that brings them about.

And here I was thinking those moments where made by bowling dad out in beach cricket while he suffered some sort of irukandji syndrome.

It's amazing how a beach can attract the fattest and/or ugliest people in the world that still think they look good in a bikini or a speedo.
