2. You are still amazed to see blue water when you arrive at the beach. I mean, what is this place? A postcard?

3. Thoughts in the ocean: “Why is there a starfish on my foot?!”

4. Any confidence you once had in a bathing suit has been obliterated by thong-wearing South Beach regulars. It’s a shocking sight to get used to.
