Florida Vacation Days 3 and 4 (The Beach)

Saturday morning we packed up the car (weren't we just in this thing!?) and drove down to North Palm Shores, Florida (which is not Jensen Beach, Florida ...). We arrived at a beautiful hotel with a gorgeous view.

The kids were eager to go to the pool and the beach (we will have some beach photos later from our inlaws as I was a little nervous taking the camera to the beach). The sun was hot and I, apparently, had forgotten how to apply (and re-apply) sunscreen. Over the course of two days, I got the worst sunburn I have had in probably 20 years. You would think that I would have learned that the sun can, and will, burn. It hurt. Oh goodness, did it hurt. I was just painful being.

Despite that, the water was very warm, oil free and relaxing. Mason and Mallory were delightful to watch playing in the sand as Mommy and I floated in the ocean. We even saw manatee swim up near the jetty. According to a local, he (she?) lives in the harbor and comes out almost daily for a swim. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. I know, I know, its not like I saw Nessie or a mermaid, its just that us land-locked Indiana folks don't see manatees every day.

This is how you know the kids had fun ...

Has my pain taught you nothing? You got a sunburn? Neutrogena Helioplex Spray On...expensive, but much cheaper than chemo. If you thought that burn hurt, try sporting it for 6 weeks with migraines and puking...skin cancer SUCKS! Put on sunscreen! One burn is all it takes to get the big "C".
