If you've ever heard the phrase, "Life's a beach," you probably wondered what does it actually mean. A seagull swooping in and stealing your wallet? Or maybe that beached whales are some profound allegory for our society? Well, probably neither but it's fun to entertain the possibilities.
We here at Bored Panda have compiled a series of the most unexpected things that took place at the seashore and it turns out, these pictures have the answers to the questions above. So if you thought that nothing ever really happens on a beach day, let us prove you wrong. It's not just lazing around and baking in the sunshine. The same water you're washing your troubles away can also spit out a giant squid right in your face. The sad part, though, is that it's not all that exciting. Or romantic. There's always a balding, middle-aged man to photobomb your best shots. But hey, at least you’ll never get bored with all these funny people around you.
Her Name Is Argiro And She Likes To Dry Up On This Chair That The Locals Saved For Her
What's cool about visiting the beach -- even the same one -- is that they are ever-changing environments so it'll be a little different every time you come back. Within one human lifetime, a shoreline can grow or shrink by tens of feet due to the action of waves, wind, storms, floods and other weather conditions.
Waves can erode beaches and carry material to other areas, widening shorelines. They can also erode the bases of cliffs until they collapse, changing the coastline overnight. The wind blows sand beyond the waves, forming sand dunes which are eventually colonized by plants. The vegetation slows the wind, preventing it from blowing the sand away and the dunes continue growing larger and larger. There's always something going on.

And if this leaves you craving for a new adventure, try to look for a beach that has a Blue Flag status.

This means that they are safe, the water quality is great, and there are plenty of things to experience. They are in most countries around the world with a total of 4,154 Blue Flags waving across the globe.
