Beach Essentials!

It's that time of year, folks! The time of year when we're all itching to get our toes in the sand and booties in a beach chair. We actually have a few trips scheduled that I am counting down the days to! Before we can depart we must pack a few beach essentials to make the most of our trip. A few things to toss in the bag before you leave:

  1. Books and Magazines
    What is more perfect than hours of uninterrupted reading of your favorite books and magazines on the beach? Not much! 
  2. sunscreen
    Cancer is not cute. End of story.
  3. Refreshing Liquids
    water, beer, whatever your poison of choice you definitely need something to stay hydrated!
  4. hat and sunglasses
    Along the same lines as sunscreen, these are crucial for protecting that precious skin on your face.
  5.  Games
    This is more for those beach goers like my husband. While I am perfectly content to sit in my chair and rest for hours. My hubby on the other hand would rather die a slow, painful death than sit still on the beach for that long. Our games of choice are bocce ball and corn hole!
  6. Towels and Chairs
    Whether you're going to sit there for the long haul or just to regain your energy, they are essential!

What is on your beach essentials list??


  1. I co-sign your list! ;) I do like to have a football or frisbee or something too. Most of the time I can sit and read for hours, but even I need to get up and stretch my legs and move sometimes too!

    GOSH, I just got back from the beach 1 month ago and I would do anything to get back asap!! lol

  2. all of these things!! i just bought my first floppy hat and can't wait to wear it!

  3. we'll be heading out to the river this weekend, so I read every word of this! trying to make sure I don't forget anything. and yes, I said river. no beaches in ks, but that's ok. sherman likes the river better anyways. :)
