Now let's get serious, folks. I am a redhead.
I don't tan. I burn and freckle.
And I live in Florida.
How can a redhead survive at the beach in Florida? I'll tell you!
It's called a beach canopy.
A really big beach canopy
Also handy (as seen above):
A big floppy beach hat
(Awesome, stylish Italian friend is suggested, but not necessary...well, not necessary for anyone but me, that is.)
I really do enjoy the beach once I actually get there.
I especially love the beach on the west coast (of Florida, that is) at sunset. And not just because I can come out of the canopy! Florida sunsets are the best!
I also loved the beaches in the Dominican Republic when I was there on a mission trip 4 years ago. I know that I took more pictures, but this was the best one that I could find to post:
The water was absolutely gorgeous and super warm.
Now I'm really thinking that Ben & I need to hit the beach at least once before the summer is over. I'm sure that he will be thrilled since he could live at the beach and surf! We'll probably be hitting the east coast beaches for sunrise instead of the west coast for sunset, though. Heck, it's Florida. We could probably swing both!
