Use what you have – great motto. While sitting on the pebbly beach at Capri I saw a child fill a bucket with pebbles to make a ‘stone castle’. I saw another fill a bottle to shake. Another group were tossing the littler pebbles at each other. Not sure that was a safe game haha.
Pros of a pebbly beach
You can sit on the waters edge and when you get up there’s not a single grain pebble in your swimming costume.
You don’t have to rinse pebbles off your feet when you leave the beach.
You don’t take home pebbles in everything.
There’s no pebbles in the car when you travel home.
You can fold your towel up without having to work out which way the wind is blowing.
Cons of a pebbly beach
You walk off the beach with an interesting mottle looking rash on your legs/ back/ tummy/ however you pressed onto those pebbles.
Pebbles are slippery in the water. This can also go I to the PROS section as it makes for very comical people watching ax they stumble, plan and attempt to manoeuvre themselves into and out of the water 🙂
When people walk past they don’t just dislodge a trickle of grains onto your towel rather a mini avalanche of pebbles.
