At the Seaside

by Tetiana Savchyna

When a hectic period of time at work is over I decide to go to the seaside. I go to the seaside because there I retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, breathe in healthy sea air, and lounge away my time. I always sunbathe on the beach to get tanned and serene. If I want to explore new places and try, I go abroad to visit a modern and comfortable seaside resort where I try endless options for activities and amenities.

When I arrive at the place I go to the hotel, to the hostel, to the cottage or room I reserve beforehand. I show my passport and fill in a check-in form. A few minutes later I settle in my room or suite, put on my summer clothes, take my bag, sunscreen and go to the beach. On the beach I lie on my towel or rent a beach bed or deck chair. I prefer sunbathing on a deserted beachto listen to the silence and stillness of the seashore. When I get relaxed I go into the sea to plunge into the pleasure of the sea water. I like swimming using such styles as the breaststroke and the crawl. In order to observe underwater world I go snorkelling and diving. I don't sunbathe in the afternoon because it is harmful for skin. So, I go to my room for my afternoon nap. In the evening I like trying different resort amenities or go to neighbouring places to go on an excursion or to restaurants where I can try some ethnic food.

When my time at the seaside is over I feel relaxed, happy, and full of energy.Moreover I start feeling homesick.

P. S. I also feel satisfied because of my suntan!
