going to the beach

I don't think I've ever actually been to an East Coast beach. So we drove the 20 minutes over to Virginia Beach so I could get my feet wet. First stop was at one of the many places serving cheap breakfasts. With full bellies, we decided to hit the beach. My cousin and I laid out and went in the water, while the rest of the group went up and down the boardwalk. It was really hot there. I thought I'd be content just laying on the beach, but it was way too hot.
The thought of going in that brown water that smelled funny wasn't too appealing. But my cousin urged me to go - how can you say you were at Virginia Beach if you didn't actually go in the water? So I waded in a little ways.
