John:  Yeah. You just drive off the road, right onto the sand. It’s cool.

Steph:  Neat-o. We should totally go. Let’s go.

John:  Ok.

It’s so much fun to play hooky and go to the beach for the day. Nobody has to know where you are at. You can just take off and not tell anyone.
Is there a beach or some other fun area where you live? The closest beach to Portland is about an hour and a half away. It’s not that far, but sometimes the weather is different out there.
You should always check the forecast before you go because it might not be as nice there.
