  • I like the idea of the beach.

    The soothing sounds of crashing waves, steady ocean breezes, and taste of salt in the air are all appealing to my senses; salt water and sand, not so much.

    Still, who can pass a beach without putting toes in the water?

    Bare feet are not required to experience the idea.
