I don’t live near a beach, so I tried to simulate the experience by parking far away from my apartment and then sitting in my bathtub after pouring three cupful’s of salt into the water.

I don’t have any sand, so I shoved oatmeal between my toes, which immediately puffed up. Now I’m trying to imagine screaming children and someone drowning  not far off shore.

Thus far, it feels about on par with actually going to the beach.


I will keep you all updated on my progress.
