Summer is not over yet and our vacation is happening now! All we can think of when we hear summer is sun, sea and sand!
As a child, the memories of my Dad taking me to Lake Michigan every chance he had, is truly embedded in my mind. I was born in Michigan and going to the lake was my absolute favorite childhood memory. Weather it was swimming with my dad or watching the fireworks with my family, these are memories I will never forget. Now, as I have grown and living in Texas, I truly miss living close to the lake! So for years, my husband and I try to find a vacation spot as close to the ocean as we can, to create new memories with our children. Who doesn’t love to go to the beach?
For years, going to the ocean has been our yearly vacation spots. Our ultimate favorite beaches are located in Florida where we have family members. There are other favorites; however, they are further away. I have gone through a few beach bags in my time and have been looking for a new one. I believe I have fun my ultimate favorite this time around. Not only is it roomy, big, good material, it is so pretty! Keep in mind that a beach bag must be of good material to withstand the sand and from it getting so dirty oceanside or from a wet swimming suit!
Flip flops are also essential so once you come out from swimming in the ocean, you will need to walk on and off the sand. A cover-up is my favorite to protect yourself from the sun. Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun’s damaging UV rays!
Today, I am sharing my beach/swimming bag essentials! Don’t leave to the beach without them:
- beach bag
- swimming suit
- swimming suit cover up
- sunscreen lotion
- aloe vera lip balm (good for sunburns)
- summer hat
- flip flops
- beach towel
- wristlet or makeup bag to keep keys, money, phone
There is so much more you can add as extras as reading books, hair brush, hair ties, wipes, water bottle, snacks, deodorant and a change of clothes. You are free to stuff your bag with as much as you want. I just don’t particularly like my bag to be too heavy to carry around. I want to take this same bag to sight see so it will be fairly full already.
Beach bag essentials for the perfect beach day!
Enjoy your Summer!
