    Seabrook Island, South Carolina. It is beautiful, private, and there are dolphins to watch sometimes. My sister has a vacation home there and it is my happy place because I am surrounded by family when I am there

    Our favorite beach to go to is the Outer Banks in N.C. We love the lighthouses and the unspoiled, uncommercialized national seashore area. We also love to take the ferry down to Ocrakoke Island each visit to experience life at a slower pace. Such fun beach products this month! Can’t wait to make some beachy things with them!

    We use to go to the nature preserve beaches when I was little – when the pterosaurs flew high over-head. Those lovely beaches are so crowded now, that going during cold raw weather is the only reasonable time to go. (Nothing’s the same since the dinosaurs went extinct!)

    Absolutely swoon-worthy release. Now for the tough decisions – what WILL I live without?

    I used to love to go to the beach at Gonzaga bay Mexico. Beautiful scenery, swim with whale sharks, sometimes see dolphins in the bay. Wonderful

    We recently discovered Rialto Beach in Washington. It’s covered with huge tree trunks thrown up on the sand during storms.

    I love the beach – any beach! My favorite probably was the one near Orcutt CA, because we lived there for a time when I was a child, so I got to go often.

    When I was little, we used to go to Cocoa Beach, Florida. It’s been so long since I was there, but it still makes me smile when I think about playing along the shore with my sisters.

    Beautiful beach in the Caymun Islands! Spent a few days there with my son and family! Winter here in West Virginia; but was balmy and water warm in Caymun Islands.

    The Jersey shore, being from Pa, there isn’t a summer that goes by without us going. I Like all the beaches in New Jersey, but Ocean City is probably our favorite.

    I have great memories of vacations on the gulf coast of Alabama, and Florida. The sand is sugar white and feels so good on you feet. Fun times.

    Jekyll Island, GA Quiet, peaceful beaches, the whole island can be traveled by bicycle, golf, if you’re into that, :), a water park for the kids, sea turtle museum & hospital, picnic areas…I could go on and on…we go every year. Sometime with family, sometimes with friends, sometimes just us. Love it.

    Hanauma Bay on Oahu in Hawaii is a great beach…fun to snorkel and swim.
    It has been a long time since I was there, but I have fond memories.

    Growing up and living in land-locked Colorado, I have not spent much time at the beach. As a kid, we would visit my grandparents in Philadelphia and visit Atlantic City. As an adult, we have been to the beaches in Hawaii.

    My favorite beach was in Maui HI. We walked to the beach with a bottle of wine, and watched the sand crabs poke out of sand while the sun was setting! I thought it was a once in a life time vacation but we are going to visit next year! YEAH!

    I was at a beach in St. Marie de la Mare, France once and got to dip my toes into the Mediterranean. That was pretty sensational for me. I’m loving lots of the sea themed images, dies and papers in this release! I can hardly wait!

    Angela W says:

    I would love to visit the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. They are my parents favorite and I would love to see them as an adult. It would be so peaceful to find a quiet place to just listen to the waves and relax. Thanks for another great release!

    I love Perkins Cove in Maine. It have a lovey paved walkway along the shore and cute little shops.

    Donna Gourley says:

    Until I make it to Hawaii, Ocean Isle Beach, NC, is our favorite. It’s close enough to the “city life” if that’s your thing (if only for a day), but it is a quiet, family friendly place that it’s easy to get lost in…which is just what I need during vacation. It’s been our go-to place for 25+ years.

    Leucadia, CA. I grew up there and moved to the Midwest in my 30s. I miss SoCal a lot, but get back to visit family a few times a year.

    Keep Leucadia Funky!

    My favorite was the beaches of Figi. I got to go to a private island where there was no one on the beach but me, at times. It was the most relaxing trip I have ever taken and I came back with a great tan, lots of beautiful shells and some wonderful memories.

    Janet Marks says:

    Long Beach Island was my favorite beach growing up. Now, Topsail Island in North Carolina is my happy place (and calming place). Just the smell and sound of the ocean brings me to all kind of special memories.

    Remembering good times at Newport State park beach. Birthday wishes die is something I could use year round!

    Trunk Bay, St. John, U.S Virgin Islands is the most beautiful place on earth in my estimation. Peaceful, gorgeous white sand beach, aquamarine water and lots of greenery!!! I’d live there if it was possible.

    HJ says:

    Ocean Isle, NC is my favorite beach and Daytona Beach, FL is my second, with Rehoboth Beach, DE a close third. Ocean Isle is peaceful and a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily routine. At the Daytona beach the water is warmer and I love being able to drive on the beach. At Rehoboth, the water is too cold most of the summer to enjoy being in it, but the beach is nice and there is great tax-free outlet shopping after we’ve had enough sand and fun on the beach.

    Ever since our children were born we’d try to make it to the south Shore of Lake Superior in the summer. After 30 years, our children now bring theirs,along with their cousins and their children! Wonderful memories are still happening.

    Melanie says:

    We used to dive at Bonair. The beaches on one side of the island had such sparking white sand, and you could walk out in the water a long ways as the sand gradually tapered off. Great memories! These days, as we are older, we go to the local Oregon beaches and sometimes travel down the California coast visiting beaches along the way to the Redwoods. I love all beaches! Nearly every one is unique and fascinating. I was a biology major, and it is fun to be able to name the creatures I see in tide pools. My spirit is happy, calm and relaxed at the beach. Can’t wait to get my hands on all things beachy in this release. Thank you for creating them!

    Linda says:

    I love the soft, white sand of the Gulf but nothing beats the view from the beaches on Maui, HI. Snorkeling the coral reefs, turtle watching, dolphin watching and the constant whale sighting if you go between Jan-Mar.

    Long Beach Island in New Jersey, has some of the most beautiful beaches…very quiet and a lovely place to vacation! In fact, we’ve been going there since I was a child.
    Another really fabulous release, Nichole! Counting down until the store opens tonight 🙂

    Jones Beach on Long Island, NY. My mom and dad used to take us there every summer while we were kids. Dad taught the four of us how to “jump the waves.” It is one of my favorite childhood memories.

    Any beach along the Great Lakes in Michigan! My favorite is Cathead Bay on Lake Michigan. Hardly anyone knows about it and when we get the chance to go up there we usually have the whole beach to ourselves.

    I don’t really have a favorite, but have seen some pictures of places that I wouldn’t mind visiting. Maybe someday!

    Pat M says:

    The Jersey shore, specifically Ocean City. I grew up going there every summer to visit my grandmother who worked there during the summer. Ocean City has the best boardwalk of all the towns along the Jersey shore.
    My husband and I still go there every year, camping outside of Sea Isle City. That way we get to go up and down the coast visiting all the towns we love like Ocean City, Cape May, Sea Isle City etc. Looking forward to another week the end of the summer.
