I've been to the beach several times this summer and actually ventured into the water. Unfortunately, the Atlantic Ocean water off Savannah's coast does not resemble the clear, blue waters you can find along European shores. This murky water has always discouraged me from splashing in the waves. (The murkiness results from the muddy river water merging with the ocean. source) I prefer to see what I'm swimming with, especially when the water is warm and the jellyfish stings are common. But, this summer, I steeled my nerves and made a few trips into the ocean.
It's fun to see my friends' children enjoy the waves and playing in the sand. I was also able to hit the beach with my Aunt Joni, while she watched her youngest grandchildren experience the beach for the first time.
