Because I knew I would be snowed in today thanks to the blizzard, I decided to get out and go to Misquamicut State Beach yesterday. I love the beach, yet, I never go in the summer. The sun is too hot, there are too many people and I always get a headache from the salt air if I stay too long. In my opinion, going to the beach when it’s freezing out, to the point that it’s 20° and there’s snow on the ground, is a much better option. It’s more fun to be able to frolic, troll the signs and have the whole beach to yourself. There’s also no beach traffic and free, unlimited parking!
