I was born in a seaside town, so I naturally like to see the sea or ocean. I love swimming or snorkelling. Unfortunately, my wife is scared of water, so since we got married, I stopped going to beaches. It's a little bit pity.

I would like to be going to the beach and laying all day. But before I will be put sun cream on my body, because my skin very sensitive from sun lights. If I have a mistakes in my text, please tell me what part of education I need taught. Thanks

Usually every weekends we go to the beautiful beach of our city. Some kids play with the sand at the beach building sand castles, while others enjoy sliding on the slides. In the winter, adults in the family either enjoy taking sunlight or prepare Bar BQ for the whole family. We usually don't have surfboards, but camels or SUVs are available on rent in the desert for an hour or more to enjoy riding.

Sometimes, i have mistake with the word "sunglasses" by sun glasses and "sun cream" by suncream, ect... Is there any rules to remember them?

Hello mitykg,

These are examples of compound nouns. Some compound nouns are written as two words (coffee table(, some are hyphenated (daughter-in-law) and some are written as one word (postman). I'm afraid there is no rule for this; you simply have to memorise each.

I go to the beach in summer, which is near my town, about 20 km away. I go with my family but I do not surf and I use the beach towels to lie down and dry myself after a swim in the sea. At some point also collect clam shells.

Do you go to the beach? If so, what do you like to do there?
