Booking Through Thursday: Beach Buddies

Yup. It’s Thursday.

On Booking Through Thursday, here’s the question of the week:
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?
And here’s my answer, in two parts.
First, the rejection of the premise: I don’t go to the beach!
I really don’t like the beach. I sunburn even while wearing SPF 50 and sitting under a huge umbrella. And sunscreen and sand are a truly vile mixture to have affixed to one’s person. There it is.
Second, the sudden emergence of an answer anyway: Nancy Drew!
And Bess and George. Those girls know how to solve crimes. Who could be better company if you’re stuck on a beach? Most certainly they’d discover a jewel thief or some such, and then there’d be a ripping good tale that would make the beach visit worthwhile. Almost certainly the lifeguard would be a secret villain.
And now I’m really, really regretting that I was too cheap to buy that Nancy Drew purse I saw at ALA once upon a time. (But apparently I’m still too cheap, because such purses are buyable online, and I still ain’t budging.)
