  1. You need an older child and a husband who doesn’t come to the beach.

    I go to the beach with a book, a chair, a bag with various lotions, a drink of some sort and a few towels.
    I tell everyone to bring their own chair and everything else they may need.
    I stay on the beach from about 10 am until they come get me, at about 7-8 pm.
    Sometimes I do go up to pee and get a sandwich.

    You need to delegate….

    I am lining my books up right now for our Sept. vacation and wedding.

  2. Speaking of books. That yellow Harlan Coben book you leant me, Gone For Good, is making the rounds of all of my friends who didn’t already have it. And 2 of them did. It is the best. Perfect for the beach.

    When I go alone,I have one beach bag and one chair. The first time i did it I felt like I was naked!

  3. glad you liked the book. I don’t read them again, so send it on it’s way. I have a lot more when you need them.

  4. Not liked, loved, I got a couple at the used book store, but I would love to pick through your stash.
