The other day, I was at the beach doing what I love to do best - read.
Well, I flipped through my magazine and saw an article on skin cancer.
I could not bring myself to read it.
Not at the beach. I read it when I returned home.
I just felt so guilty to read the article while laying in the sun.
I have always had issues with the sun. But, the beach is my favorite place so off I go.
I don't spend hours in the sun like back in the day when I would spend summer weekends with friends at shore rentals, talking about the night out before and which guy we had met.
Now, 30 minutes on my stomach. 30 minutes on my back. And then, I am under my beach umbrella. For a total of about 3 hours.
I never would have thought to purchase a beach umbrella. But last year I did and it is the best investment I ever made.
Under $20 at CVS with an SPF of 100.
I am well hooked-up with tanning lotion supplies and always apply it before I get to the beach.
Well, Dr. M. I will be seeing you in September for my yearly full-body skin check.
Hopefully all will go well.
I really love the beach.
