33 Times People Witnessed Something Interesting At The Beach And Just Had To Share It
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.
#1 Her Name Is Argiro And She Likes To Dry Up On This Chair That The Locals Saved For Her
This must be in Greece. Argyro means 'silvery' in Greek, it's a relatively common name. So sweet. And she is kinda silvery too :)
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.
#2 There! Instead Of A Stupid Castle
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.
#3 My Lady Friend Wanted A Piggy Back Picture On The Beach And A Random Biker Watching The Sunset Said He Wanted One Too
And if this leaves you craving for a new adventure, try to look for a beach that has a Blue Flag status. Blue Flag criteria include quality, safety, environmental education and information standards, the provision of services and general environmental management criteria. 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.

What do you think ?
What did we learn from all these pictures? That seagulls are in fact assholes!
You didn't need pictures to tell you that...just take a trip anywhere there are seagulls...they aren't shy....Load More Replies...
Yeah, but they're hungry, apparently.
@BusyLady Not necessarily. Seagulls are actually one of those animals that will keep eating until they burst if the food is tasty enough.
In Turkey, it is different, they don't steal anything. But we feed them with "simit" (a pretzel like Turkish food) travelling by ferries.
That raccoons will form an oderly queue for Fritos.
like Talkers to z biscuits
I live about 2 hours from the beach. The seagulls have infiltrated my area as well, and they're greedy bastards.
I live in the near the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, why do we have seagulls and pelicans here?
Age 13, a seagull crapped in my ice cream. I had already eaten half so my parents wouldn't buy me a replacement either. Seagulls are indeed assholes.
so are your parents
I live near Nashville, TN. Somehow seagulls have migrated hear as week. Only see them around Jan-March. Still flying booty holes
Oh no, how long till they get to Kansas?
They are such brazen opportunists that they remind us of our own species, I suppose.
How about : don't take lame pictures of your food.
Finding Nemo got it right, "Mine! Mine!"
mmh haa mmh mmh mmh haaa mmh mh haa. stop it now
Why seagulls are bastards = Humans started to feed them
Exactly, thank you. They are just the profiteers of human stupidity.Load More Replies...
Indeed. That’s why I don’t hate them but dislike people’s attitude. Seagulls are actually quite amusing fellows.
My family and I went out to dinner one night, when we were leaving with our leftovers, my husband put the box on top of the car to put the baby in the car and a seagull snatched the box right off the top of the car 😭😭😭
Seagulls are my spirit animal.
Good, I thought I was the only one who likes seagulls !!!Load More Replies...
