What does one pack for a beach outing? This is a question most humans don’t ponder over. But for those non-beachers like myself, here’s a lineup of ridiculous necessities you might consider.

+ A heavy duty canvas rucksack
+ A big knife for when pirates show up. One can either join them or repel them
+ Camera for candid photos
+ Sunglasses for going incognito
+ A wide brimmed hat to avoid any tanning. Also contributes to the incognito look
+ Blue jean jacket to harmonise with the context
+ Boots – sandals expose your grubby toes
+ iPod for cancelling ocean wave sounds
+ Extra shirt in case one ends up being thrown into the water
+ Sketchbook and pencils for recording treasure findings
