Booking Through Thursday: A Day at the Beach

btt button

Suggested by Joy:

Which fictional character (or group of characters) would you like to spend a day at the beach with? Why would he/she/they make good beach buddies?

Interesting question.

While not necessarily literary characters (though they did feature in tie-in novels when the series was on the air), I think it’d be fun to hang out with the Cunninghams (plus Fonzie, of course) from Happy Days.  Why you ask?  Well, they were just such a well-adjusted family that it seems like they’d be ideal beach companions.   Plus Mrs. C could probably pack a mean picnic lunch to eat there.  And with Fonzie around, there’s be plenty of cute girls too….

On the other hand, it always seems like when you go to the beach, at least one afternoon you can’t get in the water due to jellyfish or some other creature.  In that case, it’d be handy to have AcquaMan around to send said creature back out to sea so I can boogie-board and body-surf.
