This afternoon we decided to go to the beach around 3:00. Since I had already showered I didn't put my bathing suit on, thinking I would just sit and read. Before settling down with my book I went down to the water to get my feet wet. However, thanks to a big wave that came when I wasn't paying attention, I fell over and soaked myself completely. Since I was already wet, I figured I might as well get in, clothes and all. It was fun, but swimming in the ocean is nearly always better in a bathing suit. The moral of the story is: If you're going to the beach, even if you don't plan on getting wet, wear a bathing suit anyway.
