TGIF (2)

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads! Check it out and post your link!
This weeks TGIF: Where is your ideal place to take a summer vacation and get lost in a book?

I don't enjoy beaches for the same reasons most people do. I'm not a fan of swimming in the ocean. I will do it, but not for long. Instead, I prefer to sit and read on the sand or the balcony of my favorite beach house/condo in Deleware. I know, most people want to go to Florida, or to a different country, but I love the boardwalks and beaches in Deleware. I read Dracula for the first time on that balcony when I was 13. I stay at a hoppin' place where people are always walking underneath my balcony, and the beach is RIGHT THERE. During the day I people watch and read, and in the evening I just read with the sound of the ocean. *sigh* Such a pleasant time of the year for me. Can't wait to be there next month!


  1. I don't like to sit on the beach either! It's too noisy and I just don't like it. :)

  2. The beach is a really great place to read - although the sand does not make it any easier.

  3. Agreed! I'm not much for swimming at beaches, but they are so pretty to look at. I've never been to Delaware, but I hope I get to visit now!

  4. I love my porch under the gazebo. It's similar to a balcony in the sense that it's shady with a nice breeze.. :]

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend! :]
