We are surrounded! Probably not what you expect or want to hear if you’re going for the stranded lifestyle. Play along and hold off judgement until the end.
To make it more interesting, we are going to put you in a chair and let you face the barricade for hours. Still worried? Oh there’s one more thing, the barricade will make advancements threatening you and your chair. Stress setting in?
Stay calm because with Stay Stranded, there is always good news and here it is. It is by far, the most relaxing and beautiful barricade ever designed. Why? Man didn’t design it nor can he control it, so he just enjoys it!
About 71 percent of the Earth's surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water. 1 That’s right, we are surrounded by water. Glorious water that playfully encroaches on our land masses and beautifies the Earth’s surface. Can you imagine the pictures from space without it? Not to get all astronauty or technical on you, but think about that for a sec.
Okay, so back here on the Earth’s surface, we play around, on, and in water for recreation. Lakes, streams, and ponds fill our days with fishing, boating, and swimming. But there is something magical about the oceans. They are powerful and majestic, yet tranquil and serene. And then there’s the beach! Every magnificent grain of sand.
Ahhhh the beach, the playground where humanity meets humility. The playground that commands respect, yet offers whimsical days without end. The backdrop for eternal sunrises and sunsets where you can see for miles on end. The place where the horizon is a million miles away but right in front of you. We dot this playground with our toys, umbrellas, and cutesy, although somewhat, skimpy attire. We set up shop for hours, days, or a lifetime. Why?
Because it creates an oasis. Okay, there is a lot of sand. And yes, sand sticks to absolutely everything and finds places no one even knew existed. And the sun will make its mark on you literally if you aren’t careful. But,….if you give it a chance, it won’t disappoint. The beach is an escape from normalcy that is beautifully orchestrated with the soothing sounds of waves crashing and the smell of salt air. Life is slower, simpler, and unassuming. You can make the beach your own oasis. Load up the car, golf cart, or wagon or just walk out the door barefoot and empty handed. The best part is that it doesn’t matter. It’s your call, on your terms. Tell us how you get stranded at the beach!
