I live near the beach in California, and really, I think it's just about the perfect spot. I'm at the top of a hill south of LA. From my balcony, I can look out at the Los Angeles skyline, or I can drive about 5 minutes to the cliffs looking over the ocean. If I drive down the hill (about 10 minutes) I can be on the sand. The weather is great, the community is quiet, and I'm very happy. We've only lived here for a short time (2 months) but I'm always looking for ways to do more/enjoy the beach with my 4 year old.

Hi, I've just joined this community because I live by the beach in Tauranga, New Zealand. I am sitting at my computer looking out over the harbour, it's like a mill pond today, very calm. We moved back to NZ after living in London for 20 years and I have no regrets about coming home to give my kids ( 7, 10, 12) a better quality of life and the opportunity to participate in the sort of beach experiences I had as a kid growing up. It's AWESOME LIVING BY THE BEACH!!!

We live 5 minutes away from our favorite beach here in Hawaii.  My family enjoys surfing there in the winter months, and spear fishing in the summer months.  Well, the surf and fish, I'm a shell collector myself!  ;)  Nice to be here among mommies who also love being with their families at the beach.

I joined because I love the beach and long to live on the beach but my husband doesn't share my obsession.  And it is an obsession.  I hand painted beach scenes in my home so I can pretend I am at the beach.  I thought that I could live through others who do live by the beach and maybe find some cool beaches to visit for vacations.

I joined for the same reasons, I live 10mins walk from the beach in New Zealand, Whangaparaoa the kids and I go after school most days as it is about 37degrees here and our summers are long. We love it, my kids are 6,5,3.

We live just outside OceanCity, MD and I love taking the kids to the beach all year (except the real winter days) but with work and school and kids sports, etc. we don't get out as much as we would like. But it dose seem to be a different mindset than the people who are at home in the city or in the mountains etc.

I joined because i live 5 minutes from Galveston, TX beach. I love taking my boys to the beach....my youngest practically grew up on Bolivar Peninsula's beach. He can't go to the beach without getting a least a toe in the water....no matter what the water temp is!

I live 30 minutes from the beach in Northern California. During the summer we practically live at the beach! My children are teens now and it's been so fun teaching them to surf and play volleyball!

I live on the New Hampshire seacoast, 5 minutes to the beach!  Expecting our first baby July 31, and looking forward to having a "beach baby."  That's why I joined.

I live 30mins from the beach and I think thats waaaaaay to far away. I live in Perth Western Australia, and I joined cos the beach is an essential part of the social culture here. My son does surf lifesaving, we're there 1-2 times a week. sometimes more depending on my work schedule and the weather!

Yep I am a mum and live walking distance from the beach in Melbourne. The weather here is 41 degrees and the temp in our house is 30 degree. Took the kids (Girl 3 and Boy 10 mnths)down the beach early today for about an hour and thinking of going again tonight. Have put my little man down for a late sleep so he wont be too cranky if we are to spend the evening at the beach. Moved close to the beach last year and loving it!!
