It might be difficult to believe, but even when a person is taking advantage of all the best a beach weekend or vacation has to offer, they still are missing out on a depth of experience that relies on storytelling. A lot of times, people are afraid to take a chance beyond the “traditional” beach experiences. People come to the beach, hit a boardwalk or two, have the ice cream or french fries that they have deemed the only one worth trying at the beach, but then what? What makes a vacation really memorable is the story that goes with it, not just a list of things that everyone does at the beach. The narrative makes a trip cogent and that begins with the will to just go out and take a chance. The appeal of a good, “What I did this summer story” is a little bit about exclusivity.
