There are those who would rather spend time drinking in seaside bars, and others who like to spend their time actually on the beach and in the sea.
This latter group will often indulge in a number of activities while soaking up the sun on the sand or pebbles. Some will go for a swim or take water toys in the sea, while others might have a barbecue on the beach and indulge in a spot of beach volleyball or Frisbee throwing. Unfortunately though, some people do not consider that these types of actions might actually result in somebody suffering an injury in an accident that was not their fault.
