Salt Water Fishermen: More of How to Fly at the Beach

Get up, get active, and take to the skies. The usual old favorite beach activities are always loads of fun which is why they’re still popular. But in my last post we talked about flying at the beach. Flying kites, even fishing kites, that is. Still flying you can use other air-borne paraphernalia to extract maximum pleasure from a beach resort trip or vacation. Here’s more on how.

Another popular beach front activity is flying a paper, balsa wood or model airplane. With wide open spaces and light to still breezes, virtually any design will soar like an albatross. If you fly paper designs then losing one won’t break your heart. Balsa wood or Styrofoam planes fly well in beach breezes too, just remember it’s possible to “lose” your craft to a stray or persistent breeze going the “wrong” way. Options for planes abound in Hobby shops, Toy stores, book stores, and of course, the internet. Radio-controlled model airplanes are a possibility too. Again, just be sure to check local regulations.

So don’t just go to the beach and lay there like a fish out of water. Yes you can always go salt water fishing, but you can also take to the water or better yet, take to the skies. You’ll never look at a beach resort vacation the same again.
