Let’s All Go to the Beach!

I have been so blessed and lucky to have the chance to hang out at the beach quite a bit this summer. It’s always been my dream to spend an entire summer swimming and enjoying the sun. I don’t know if I’ll get much of a chance to enjoy the water again this summer so I thought I’d compile my favourite photos from each beach I’ve gone to and reminisce a bit about my time spent there.

“Big, Fat Beach Day @ Hanlans Nude Beach”

Soon after Big, Fat Toronto wrapped up, I really felt a nagging desire to plan something again. I wanted to see all the fabulous and amazing people I met again and I thought, why not put together a beach day? The turnout was intimate and friendly and the location (Hanlan’s nude beach) was perfect for a body positive beach day.

Hanlan’s Nude Beach
I headed to the nude beach again after falling completely in love with the atmosphere. Its not everyday that you can walk around totally naked with a bunch of strangers. It’s hard to put the experience into words but it felt liberating and so freeing to have the option to wear clothing or not. I swam in the buff and strolled around topless for hours!
Nickel Beach in Port Colborne
I cannot even express just how wonderful going to Nickel Beach was. The sand was so soft, hard and warm. We could pull up with the car directly onto the beach, it wasn’t overly crowded and the water was a nice luke warm temperature. It felt amazing pulling up to the beach to see the sun bouncing off of the water. Thankfully, I had my camera in hand and took a few videos which I compiled together for a short video. I wanted it to look dreamy because well, that’s how it felt. It was a total dream to get to spend the day at such a beautiful, quiet, relaxing location with amazing ladies.

All in all, my summer has been amazing and I cannot believe its almost over. If I could do it all over again, I would. I’ve met amazing people, experienced wonderful things and I will have precious, unforgettable memories to take with me for the rest of my life.
