I arrived at 11:30 and stayed until almost 4:00. They sky was a gorgeous blue, the temperature was around 80 degrees, and the humidity was very low. There was a delicious and constant, cool breeze coming off the water. On a scale of 1-10, it was an 11.
I brought a couple magazines to read, but only flipped through 1 of them briefly. Most of the time I listened to Spouse's mp3 player and tried not to audibly sing along.
I also brought an insulated cooler bag with a bottle of ice water, an apple, a cup of pudding, a cup of strawberry applesauce, and a cup of mango-peach applesauce, left over from when I had a tooth extracted. Those kept the hunger pangs away and were very easily portable. By the way, the 5 lbs I lost within a week of having my oral surgery actually turned into 8 lbs, and I've kept them off now that I've returned to eating solid food.
Being fair complected, I was sure to apply my Coppertone sunscreen multiple times. I love the smell of Coppertone. It doesn't smell like coconut or pineapple like a lot of sunscreens do. I really don't know what it smells like, but I love it. It reminds me of family vacations at the beach as a kid. I always used Coppertone.
