How To Spend A Rainy Day At The Beach

We knew Monday night that the forecast for Tuesday wasn’t good. When I woke up at 6 Tuesday morning I could tell it was darker out than usual, and when I stepped out on the balcony it felt like it was drizzling already. I headed out for my run and it was cloudy, humid, and a light rain. Fine for a run, not ideal for a day at the beach. cloudy I just did 4 miles and then went to the gym to do some strength training. Surprisingly, it was empty when I got there, perfect for taking a mirror selfie. gym By the time I was finishing up a few more people had come in and it is a very small gym so I was happy to be done. Knowing that there was no sun to be rushing outside for, I took my time with these guys:

roller It is really difficult to foam roll on hard floors rather than carpet.

I sat outside reading blogs and eating breakfast. Typically I wouldn’t really read blogs on vacation, but again, no reason to rush to the beach meant time to do whatever else I wanted.


It was rather chilly and windy out so I bundled up and headed to the pool area. warm clothes I think I was down there for about 45 minutes before it started raining and we packed it up. reading I made myself lunch in the room… lunch And then moved myself to the couch to continue reading. nap Which lasted for about 20 minutes before I passed out and took a 2 hour nap. Life is tough. And when all else fails, start drinking. drinks What do you do when you have bad weather on beach/pool vacations?

    1. It was still a very relaxing day! And luckily we are here for a week so one raining day isn’t a big deal at all:)

    1. Hahaha competitive much? We did bring a couple board games, but everyone kind of did their own thing during the rainy day. We played some board games at night but it was a very friendly competition:)

    1. I must have really needed it! It usually takes me a few days to truly relax while I am on vacation but after that day I felt great!

    1. I think it ended up being nice to just lay around that day- plus we are at the beach for a week so one rainy days isnt a big deal at all:)

  1. Hahaha yes! When all else fails start drinking is right 😉 rainy days at the beach are some of my favorite. Reading, napping, and movie watching are perfect, especially when you can see the ocean outside the windows 😉

    1. Yes, it ended up being a great day! I always get disappointed when I see rain in the forecast when we are at the beach, but considering we are here for a week there are still plenty of sunny days to enjoy as well!

    1. Mirror selfies at the gym only happen for me when there is no one in sight:) And yes, it ended up being a perfectly relaxing day!

  2. Nearly every year I would go to the beach there would be rain. My family would play cards and board games, and normally would catch a movie. Wine and a movie on the couch sounds perfect though. While you didn’t spend time on the beach, it looks like you still had a relaxing time!
