Summertime and the livin' is easy, quiet, and with zero worries in the world. At least, that's what most people would like to believe.
However, these people prove that hilarious summer photos and mishaps are all part of having fun in the sun.
Mistakes Were Made
Needless to say, mistakes were made at the beach this day. This guy probably just wanted to cool off, opting to get buried in the sand instead of hopping into the water.
Too bad the seagulls had a different idea.
When Bike Is Life
Girl, you should not be with this guy! He literally said, "sorry, hun, but my bike needs to be in the tent next to me. Can you sleep outside?"
He even has his arm slung around the bike!
Summertime = Worth The Risk
Typically, when people go to the beach and see a sign that reads "shark sighting today enter water at own risk," they won't usually hop right into the ocean.
By the looks of this photo, though, nothing is going to keep these vacationers from enjoying their beach time, not even jaws.
Belly Flop In The Making
Well, it looks as though the fun parent is at the wheel of this boat; considering such a sharp turn was taken, their young daughter was catapulted off the tube!
Her positioning in the air most likely resulted in an epic belly flop.
Yes, putting up a tent can be difficult. The thing is, they do come with instructions for those who aren't used to the inner workings of the poles.
This camper doesn't seem to care, though, and clearly said "close enough" before heading to bed.
When sitting out in the sun, a lot of people tend to drift off, taking a nice warm nap.
A word of advice for those people, don't fall asleep with a spoon and bowl in your lap, or else you might wind up like this person with a gnarly sunburn.
Camping Is So Relaxing
There is nothing quite like going on a camping trip and bringing your best fur friend along for the ride.
Well, that is, until that fur friend spots a squirrel in the morning and decides to stand on your face to see out the tent window.
It is all fun and games on the beach until someone decides to get buried in the sand and a football is thrown around!
At least this picture-perfect moment was captured for all time.
So Many Questions
There are a lot of questions when it comes to this lovely picture. The first is how in the world the car got to this point.
The second: do these people really think they're going to be able to pull a car out of the wet sand? Good luck, folks.
Honestly, if a person wears Crocks so often they develop this epic tan, they deserve polka-dotted feet.
That being said, it is the summer, and this person should know better than to go out without sunscreen.
A Sticky Situation
Summer is a great time to get outdoors, enjoy the sun, and apparently get into extremely sticky situations.
How this guy wound up stuck with all of these cacti is a question for the ages, but at least some medical professionals are helping him out!
Camping Under The Stars
This guy took the phrase "sleeping under the stars" and just rolled with it, completely forgetting that a tent is a good idea in the summer.
Seriously, how many bug bites did this poor guy wind up getting during the night?
DIY Scuba Gear Is Not For The Light Hearted
Folks, do not try this scuba diving gear out at home! Instead of going with a typical air tank and buoyancy compensator vest, this guy did something else entirely.
Does he know that thing strapped to his back is a gas tank?
Rules? It's Summer Vacation!
Hey, kids, it is summer vacation!
That means go wild, have fun, and don't pay attention to the sign in the sand that clearly says "do not climb, play on, and around the pipe."
Ingenuity At Its Finest
This picture showcases a genius in his prime. While camping, he opted to use a rake to skewer hot dogs for everyone seated around the campfire.
Where he got the rake is another question entirely.
There Is A Lot To Unpack Here
There is nothing wrong with taking pictures at the beach. But when the water is full of people taking selfies, there is something to be said about putting the phone down and enjoying the scenery.
Even though she looks very strange snorkeling in such shallow water, the lady in the foreground of the picture has the right idea!
Oh, The Great Outdoors
When people go camping, they're typically doing so for a fun time outside away from technology that interferes with everyday life.
This guy had other plans, though, bringing along a TV, so he didn't miss any important news.
A Sunburn For The Ages
Everyone should see this picture as a warning, something that might happen if they forget to apply sunscreen, regardless if they're wearing a ball cap or not.
Just another summer mishap!
Just A Quiet Day At The Beach
Going to the beach is supposed to be a fun, relaxing experience, something that is fun for the entire family.
Here, it looks to be anything but a fun and relaxing time! Should these people even be in the water?
Where Did He Even Find A Pullout Couch On The Beach?
While this guy has the right idea, lounging in a very comfortable spot on the beach, there is still a solid question that needs answering.
How in the world did he lug a huge pull-out couch all the way down to the water's edge?
When it comes to swimming in the ocean, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of safety.
In this case, a DIY life preserver made out of a few empty bottles and some string.
The Seagull Had Other Plans
Clearly, a relaxing day at the beach was not in the cards for this gentleman.
At least, not if this seagull had anything to say about it as it rips the hat straight off this guy's head.
Yes, Spray-On Sunscreen Is Difficult
Sunscreen is a staple of summer days in the sun. However, when it comes to spray-on sunscreen, people need to be careful.
The protective block has a way of drifting away in the wind, missing people's bodies, and creating some fun masterpiece, as seen in this funny photo.
Little Spray Tan Mishap
For some people, getting a tan the natural way in the sun is out of the question. So, they opt for a spray tan.
The thing is, when it comes to spray tans, a person can't get wet for the first few hours. Sorry to say this girl had a bad day, crying in the car post-tan.
Hey, Beach Gymnastic Isn't For Everyone
The best part about this photo is, oddly enough, not the fact that the girl in the back is about the faceplant from some beach gymnastics done horribly wrong.
The best part is the girl in the foreground has no idea what is happening behind her.
This Is Fun. They're Having Fun
There is nothing quite like bringing a dog to the beach for some fun in the water.
This poor pooch looks like they'd rather be anywhere than in the water if them trying to crawl onto their human's shoulders says anything.
That's One Way To Stay In The Shade
For some people, staying out of the sun is a must, or else they'll burn to a crisp.
This guy decided he'd have some fun, though, saying so long to a shirt in favor of sticking a beach umbrella in his shorts. Hey, there is nothing wrong with pretending to be at the beach, even while walking through a city.
Beach Chair: 1 Child: 0
No, no, this makes sense. Closing a beach chair can be complicated, trying, and overall a messy job.
This kid, even though the chair is technically closed, seems to have given in to the fact that the chair bested him in more ways than one.
Nom Nom Nom
Ice cream is a staple of many people's summer days. However, when there are seagulls flying around, it is best to stay inside and eat the sweet treat.
Otherwise, the ice cream might fall victim to a seagull such as this one!
Over Here Making Some New Friends
Nothing says a quiet day at the beach quite like making some new friends.
This lady doesn't seem overly happy with their friendship, though, especially considering one of them decided to make a home underneath her umbrella!
