The Beach or The Mountains


Which would you prefer the beach or the mountains when it comes to walks and holidays, me I like to walk along the beach doing so would make me think of my pop who loved to go for a walk along the beach not that it is something I do. 

I would also love to have a holiday amongst the mountains I think I would love the mountain air but of course I can’t get hubby to go on any holiday let alone a mountain one but I will keep trying. I might suggest a trip to The Blue Mountains or to Barrington Tops and see what he has to say about the idea, no harm in asking but I bet he will say her can’t afford it or can’t get the time off work there will be some excuse I am sure.

Maybe you like snow holidays which is a mountain holiday in the winter months since you ski down a mountain……….I have had one of those holidays a few years back and it was a great holiday……..

timothy said...

mayhaps you should save up a little and plan a short holiday WITHOUT him, that would probably change his mind! i grew up in the mountains of alabama but then lived in florida on the beach for 16 years so i LOVE them both!

Monica said...

I have always loved beachy kinds of holidays and since I now live in the mountains, getting to a beach has become almost essential! Ha! Ha!

Susan Cooper said...

I would do both at different times. There are times I need the calming sound of the waves. There are times I need the soothing sound of wind through the trees. Now I really do need a vacation. Wait, I just got back from one. :)

I really enjoy the beach. The closest nice ones are in Florida, though.

Dearest Jo-Ann,
I loved going to the beach taken by my father and enjoy just playing with the sea water. Sweet memories♡♡♡ Haha, walking or skiing not for me.
Love you always from sis-city in Japan, xoxo Miyako*

beach for me as long as it's somewhere tropical and warm :)

Bubbles said...

I'd go for the beach, just because its easir to get to.

Shelly said...

We live close to the beach. so I pick the mountains~

Geek Girl said...

I would definitely go for the beach. The ocean water is so healing and refreshing. Walk in the sand with the waves splashing over your feet... priceless!

No contest for me today, Jo-Anne. I absolutely love walking by the sea. We have such wonderful sandy beaches close by to where I live, and I get there as often as I can. It just lifts my spirits.

I think I would be happy with either one. But, since we don't live close to a beach or any mountains, I have to content myself with walks around the block. We do have an arboretum close but it's been too hot to really go enjoy it.

whiteangel said...

Both would be good, Jo-Anne.
I do hope you eventually get to have a holiday where you want to go.
I like the sea, my dad lives just so close to that. When my husband and I go only holidays these past years since my mum passed away we go to the sea.
I also have been in the mountains and hills for holidays in the past....so I am lucky.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Really, the beach in the winter...........hmmmmm it would be to cold for me at the beach in winter...lol

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Well he has gone away without me a few times over the years and me I have only ever once gone away without him and that was years ago when I went to Queensland with my parents for a few days.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I think I would enjoy a holiday by the beach

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes I think the beach would be very calming as long as there was no storm.......lol

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

We have some beautiful beaches here in Australia but I am not a beach person but still think I would enjoy a beach holiday........

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

My mum has told me that as a child I hated the sand and would freak out if I got even the tinest bit on me.......lol

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes it would have to nice a hot for me to enjoy the beach too

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Both are pretty easy for us to get to but I would be happy with any holiday at this point...........

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I get your reasoning..........and I agree

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I like the thought of walking in the sand and feeling the waves wash over my feet as I walk........

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

We have some beautiful beaches near me too and by some I mean about 10 beaches..........lol

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I would love any holiday, I keep placing holiday info on Tim's desk for him to look at but he doesn't seem to want to make a decision about going anywhere

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Maybe one day Tim will decide where he wants to go and we can have a chat about a holiday but in the mean time I will keep placing info about different holidays on his desk for him to look at

Elsie said...

Well, you already know my answer: beach, beach and some more beach, please!!! Now, if I could just afford the tropics, I'd be set! =)

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah if only we could afford to holiday in the tropics.......

Hey Monkey Butt said...

That's a tough one to pick, I'm betting I'd take the mountains over the beach though, no sand and lots of nature. Beats getting eaten by a shark or stung by something, plus no bad hair days either, unless you're rolling around in the leaves. (yea I'm still playing catch up on my readings)

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes the mountains can be great I love to go for bush walks so think I would enjoy the mountains

Update on mum

After getting up this morning and throwing a load of washing on to wash I get a phone call from Sandra just as I was thinking of ringing...
