Mini Day-Trip at the Beach!


Planning a mini day trip to the beach with your family during spring break can be a great time to bond and have some fun!

Here are a few fun activities you can do with them while at the beach:

Start off the day by making sandcastles. The mornings are best for this activity because the wet sand stretches farther from the shoreline, meaning you do not have to make several trips to the water’s edge to get your ammunition. The foggy air that still lingers in the early day also allows the sand castle to be easily molded.

Once you get a group together, start making different figures like castles or tunnels. Holding mini competitions between your friends to see who can make the best sand structure can be extremely fun. If you want to inspire your friends with some awesome sand castle structures, we recommend watching Sand Masters. This show will definitely put them in sand castle mode!
Once the day starts warming up, grill some dogs and enjoy your sandcastle art on the beach. Freshly cooked hot dogs along with a cool potato salad side makes the perfect beach lunch and is easy enough to cook so that you don’t have to worry about spending extensive time preparing a delicious meal.

After a relaxing lunch, get out your sports gear and play some volleyball! With the right group setting, volleyball can be an enjoyable activity that gets everyone actively involved. Whether you decide to play competitively or just toss the ball around, this game creates a good stimulating change from the lazy atmosphere of the beach.

After settling down from a good game, take some time to just relax and hang out on the beach. Gazing at the sunset or making a bonfire while watching the waves is great way to end the day and leave with a peaceful mind.

And that sums our mini-day trip idea for the beach. Hope you enjoyed it and please comment/blog your thoughts!

Two of the Most Stylistically Evil Pirates in History


Two of the Most Stylistically Evil Pirates in History

Thought you knew everything about evil villains? Check out the profoundly intricate ways these two pirates committed murders throughout history.

Francois l’Olonnais

Composed of long black hair and a frighteningly cunning smile, Francois l’Olonnais came to be a wicked pirate of his time. He was born during the age when the buccaneers had a strong antagonist view of Spaniards, which contributed to his target victims as a pirate. Early on he developed a reputation for himself as being a mass murderer-he would imprison as many Spanish people as possible along the coast of South America and rape or torture them with his men. His rise of power finally started to catch up with him when a group of Spanish soldiers managed to successfully ambush him. While narrowly escaping he managed to take a Spanish hostage on the way. Then he struck his sword and devoured his heart, declaring, “I will serve you all alike, if you show me not another way.” While luckily escaping the first time, his fortune didn’t last him long as he was captured again by natives-this time with no mercy. They hacked him to death and roasted him over a fire. Looks like he not only killed others in an interesting manner but was killed with style as well. This infamous act of devouring a human’s heart along with his massive killing sprees make him one of the most gruesome pirates known in history.

Stephen Decatur

If murdering with style were to be part of a career requirement, Stephen Decatur definitely takes the gold. From early on he acquired a passion for the seas, and as he was successful in each battle with various sea raids he climbed the ladder of success to become known as a national military hero. Although celebrated as a captain who had America’s interest at heart, he is listed here because he did a lot of mass murdering to acquire his fame. His most widely acclaimed sea raid was during the burning of the USS Philadelphia. During this time he gathered a group of men disguised as Maltese sailors and burned the ship to the ground without any one man from his crew getting injured. Moreover, he is famous for not resting to take revenge when his brother was killed by another pirate. Within a week he killed the man who slayed his brother and the other 33 pirates on the man’s crew all in one day. Although known at the time to be a noble captain, the way he went about slaughtering makes him one of the most fierce yet stylistic pirates in history.
