Oo we have a some polar opposites going up against each other today! Welcome back to our third installment of our versus series where today we are comparing beaches and mountains. It’s kind of like the “does pineapple go on pizza” question, you get some very strong opinions! Both are beautiful in their own way, and whoa, there’s probably some of you out there who love both equally!
Beaches can be super relaxing…depending on what beach you go to of course. There can be the family beaches packed with children which is perfect if you have a budding family, or you can find more secluded beaches if you are wanting to simply suntan and not have as many fellow beach goers around you. The sound of the waves crashing are a natural white noise making it easy to drift off into a peaceful sleep! Of course, ALWAYS make sure you are wearing sunscreen (at least SPF 15 or higher) and that you keep reapplying every hour or so. The water provides a great way to cool off as well as surf, boogie board, snorkel or just jump some waves! Beach volleyball, running, building sandcastles, etc are also great ways to sneak in a work out and some play. Picnics on the beach or if some allow it, bonfires, which are a wonderful way to connect with friends.
Mountains provide a plethora of activities, one could never run out of options! From hiking, to camping, to fly fishing, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, horseback riding, rock climbing, hunting, the list goes on and on and on. Mountains also allow you the opportunity to really connect with nature and take in the various elements. You should always take precaution that you are not invading territories and come prepared! Taking a map, walkie talkie (if there’s no cellular signals), food, bug repellant, and proper protective clothing to name a few. Renting a cabin in the woods or treehouse is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet as well.
What way do you lean towards? I’m definitely a beach kind of person myself, however mountains do work their charm on me once in awhile! 🏖🌲
