I took my holiday day last night and boy did it feel nice to have another day off.
And I used it in a good way…I went to the beach.
Of course, the beach I go to is more like a little inlet…but it’s beautiful. It’s a nice drive up past Northampton and the area is not crowded at all…it’s like a little gem, hidden away. The water is still and surrounded by trees all around and there is a breeze when you lay on the beach. The sun was out in full force, except when it hid behind the clouds. I was there for three hours and had a nice routine…15 minutes on the beach chair, reading my beach book, Summer Girls by Judy Blume, then 15 minutes lying on my stomach listening to music on my phone, then a dip in the water…repeat!
I got some nice color on my legs and arms. I didn’t put any sunscreen on my arms at all until after an hour…none on my legs at all…not too much of a burn anywhere…it will all be tan in a day or two!
The only downside was that I missed Kimm…I told her next time maybe she’ll come…there are several shaded areas where she can stay and read her book…we could take a little picnic lunch and just enjoy the day together…maybe there will be one more day this summer to escape.
Now tonight I’m on for work…hopefully it will be a nice night, fingers crossed 🙂
