I have just returned from a wonderful weekend at the beach with the Better Half of MFMC. It was approximately 36 straight hours of relaxation and fun. A much needed kick-off to my summer. We relaxed on the beach, paddle boarded till our arms were going to fall off, ate and drank good things, and laughed. A lot. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and we couldn't have asked for bluer skies, calmer breezes, or more perfect temperatures.
|The old pilings and the new pier. I love the juxtaposition of these two structures.|
People were actually jumping off of these pilings on Sunday morning. While they weren't high, they were dangerous in that the waves hit the pilings very hard. It would due so easy to get caught up in the current and be smashed against them. I prefer to avoid such activities.

|Yes, I can paddle board!!|
This morning, the beach was beautiful. I didn't want to leave.
I also learned that I don't know how to properly apply sunscreen. I brought my waterproof 50SPF for sensitive skin and thought I applied it evenly. After paddle boarding, I had a wicked burn all along my lower back. It was quite clear where I had applied and what spots I missed. I have spots like this all over my body, but my lower back is by far the worst. I guess if I am going to be paddle boarding more often, I'll have to get a lot better at this. Perhaps I can find a tub to fill with sunscreen and then dip myself into it. That should do the trick ...
