Tomorrow the weather is suppose to be decent weather so us and a few of our friends. The benefits of living in California, going to the beach in February. I'm gonna pack a picnic along with all the beach essentials and I though I would share my lists with all of you. The beach can be a fun place but if you aren't prepared it could end up a sandy disaster.

The Basics

  • SUNBLOCK! You're probably thinking duh..., but I can't stress this enough.You can get burned even if it's overcast.
  • A bathing suit
  • Beach towels
  • Sunglasses 

The Good Ideas

  • Extra towels

  • A sun hat
  • Napkins/Paper Towels

The Extras
