I’ve never spent much time on the Atlantic, but I do remember many times of playing on a Pacific beach. There’s a high degree of freedom that comes with playing on the beach right next to the ocean. Maybe it’s all those negative ions coming from the ocean breeze sweeping across the water. Maybe it’s the salt mixing with water and sand. Maybe it’s that the parents are willing to just let kids play as the adults sit on the sand or a lounge chair and read. To each their own. I’ll take that feeling of freedom, however it happens to come.
