Beach chairs make a trip to the beach something to look forward to rather than something to dread. I know that most wouldn't even think of a trip to the beach as dreadful, but let's think about that for just a minute. I don't know about you, but I don't like hot sand near as much as I used to when I was a kid. I don't like it when other people crowd into my space, and I really don't like having to haul myself up and down from the ground. Beach chairs help with all these problems.
Say it's a nice sunny day and the kids finally prevail upon you to take them to the beach. You load up the car with your towels, beach chairs, toys, some snacks and water, and off you go. You show up at the beach and finally find a place to park. Everything seems fine at first. You look around to scope things out real cool like. You notice where the people are, take note of who you don't want to be near, and we all have our reasons why we don't want to be by someone. For me it is by anyone with loud, obnoxious little kids who are running around out of control. For you it might be a smoking cigarette or a dog. Everyone has their comfort zone, and this initial analysis is critical to the well-being of your mental state while at the beach.
Once you find a suitable spot to claim as your own you open up your beach chairs and let the fun begin. After a quick dip in the water you go back to your little private domain and watch the kids as you "read" a book or magazine. It soon becomes clear to you what a genius you were for getting beach chairs when other people show up and think about setting up next to you. Here's a little secret: those beach chairs make your kingdom look bigger than it really is. Isn't that cool? This makes people give you more space, leaving you in relative peace.
After about 20 minutes the kids are ready for snacks and, of course, come running up to you. Instead of kicking sand all over you and your book like they would have done if you had simply been on a towel or blanket, but you are up and out of their way on your beach chairs. You got their little game figured out. You give them what they want and send them off again to playful bliss.
Before long you get this little grin on your face when you realize how little you've had to struggle to be comfortable. You remember back to days gone by before you got your sweet beach chairs. You used to have to toss and turn on your blanket or beach towel. Your body isn't what it used to be and those hips, knees, and back just get uncomfortable and sore when you are on the ground. Never mind the strain of having to get up! I can relate. Don't feel bad, this is the natural order of things. Now you just sit comfortably and enjoy the wonderful madness of it all.
Beach chairs go a long way to making the beach more fun. They help define your space, keep you up off the hard ground and sand, and help keep you comfy for longer than if you didn't have them. I love beach chairs and so will you!
