Not So Odvious Things for the Beach

After spending the weekend at the Beach here on the West Coast, I recalled a post from last summer. Thank you Outer Banks. This is a re-post, including photos from last year.  Let’s talk a few things you may need for a relaxed day at the beach.

Food Tenderizer.  Yep.  This is an easy first aid remedy in case of a jelly-fish sting.  Just sprinkle onto the skin that has been stung (be sure you have first removed, with a stick or shell – not your hands – any particles of jellyfish or tentacles).  This is a quick way to alleviate the sting.   It works very well with bees stings as well.   Of course, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Baby Powder.  This works so well at getting stubborn sand off of little and not so little bodies.  After swimming at the beach then sorta drying in the sand, sprinkle baby powder onto those sandy parts, don’t be prissy about it – apply mucho, then brush off vigorously.  Viola!   Now the little’s are ready for a snack and smell like Luv’s Baby Soft.   (Thanks Ms. Marisa for the tip in the Newport Beach, California a few years back!)

Anti-Bacterial Wipes.  Nuf said

Tissues/Napkins/Paper Towels

These often over looked beach bag items can come in very handy.  Sometimes, those emerging from their ocean swim don’t realize their noses are dripping more than water.

Zip Lock Bags.  A beach must, the camera is always here.

Mesh bags.  To sort and store small items especially shells and toys so they don’t become lost within the cavern of your bag coated in wetness.  Oye.

Trash Bag.  Clean up after yourself and leave the place as nice as you found it. Mother Nature will smile upon you.  Promise.  Keep it clean.

We cannot wait to return in the years ahead with more family friends in tow.   As for today, the little kiddos simply want to walk outside and be back at their destination from last week.   I have had lots of “splain’ to do” with the wee ones. 

 Very difficult since Momma wants to be back there too.
