I am definitely going to try to go to the beach more this summer. I don't even know if I went at all last year.
My deal with the beach is that #1-I hate sand. #2-When I go, I want it to be an all day (at least a few hours) event. I think it's kind of a waste to just go for a bit, which leads me to #3-You have to plan for the beach. When I go, I like to bring food, chairs, magazines, music, games, etc. Sometimes going and just vegging out is good, but usually I need to be entertained because it gets HOT.
Anyway--- Emma & I hit up the beach today. We brought chairs, towels, a cooler full of drinks & munchies and magazines. It was the perfect beach day.
The temps were in the low 80's but on the beach there was an AMAZING breeze, we didn't even break a sweat. Which probably explains why I didn't think I was getting any color! Ya'll know when I got home and showered I was a hot, sunburned splotchy mess. Oh well, it was totally worth the great day at the beach!
Tonight we also went to see Letters to Juliet.
It was actually a lot better than I thought it was going to be and that Christopher Egan is easy on the eyes!
