For the first time since we moved back to this area, Iâ€™ve been to the beach. It really hasnâ€™t changed.
We decided to get up early this morning, around 7 am, in order to head out to the beach before it got too crowded. We arrived a little around 8:30 am, and we had no trouble finding a place to park. I was actually surprised at the number of people already there, but there was plenty of space on the sand for our towels, and the weather was perfect. The sun was blazing, but there was a nice breeze so it didnâ€™t seem hot at all.
On the way there, we picked up some of that new Coke Zero which I must say I like a lot. Itâ€™s way better than Diet Coke, and to me it just tastes like a less sweetened regular Coke.
I dozed for awhile on the beach while Monica read some magazines. A little before noon, we packed up for home as it was starting to get pretty hot, and we had baked long enough. I had put on the sunscreen so I was fairly sure I didnâ€™t fry my skin. We headed home just in time to relax some more, and then wash the cars. I cooked out some leftover burgers from the DMB concert while we enjoyed some nice jazz music on the porch. Monicaâ€™s family even got to check us out on the webcam for a bit. 🙂
All in all, a pretty long but very enjoyable day, and now Iâ€™m beat. Turns out Iâ€™m pretty pink, but not really burned, except for a little spot on the front of my neck that I apparently missed with the sunscreen. Sort of like a reverse redneck.
