It took us until the last week in August to make it to the beach. But it was a wonderful beach day when we got there. The air was hot, the water was comfortable, so it was no hardship going in. There were waves, but no so big and rough that you couldn't get past them. There was a good crowd, I guess a lot of other people looked at the forecast and realized it might be the last good beach day. Yesterday the temperature was near 90, today it's in the high seventies. Makes a big difference! Tomorrow it's going to be in the low seventies!
