I'm sure many people must be headed out to the beach this weekend over the Memorial Day holiday. I too enjoy the beach, except I like it when it is cold and/or rainy, and I have to wear my jacket. Beach season for me starts in mid January and goes through the end of March. I went to the Mississippi Gulf Coast this past February, and the temperature was in the mid 20's the nights I was there and the wind was blowing around 40 miles per hour. Perfect beach vacation weather! I had a wonderful time!
