Walking Lighter on the Beach
When heading to the beach I try to minimize what I carry in order to walk lighter and to soak up more. Here is a little sneaky peeky of what I carry…
I recently bought one at a thrift shop for $2. It is attractive. It can easily dry out because the fibers can breath.
*AND it can zip!*
It doubles as our bathroom bag when we are traveling to our destinations and then transforms into our beach bag when we unpack.
One water bottle
I bought it at a rummage sale for $1.
It is glass, not plastic. We are cool with sharing and it fits perfectly into my purse/bathroom bag/beach bag.
This is a new one for me. We both tan easily so I never wore it. Lately I am becoming aware of the sun’s after effects and broke down and started using it.
I have had this bottle for over 7 years. When it runs out we will be making our own to avoid the trash. I already have a few recipes I want to try out.
I can order pizza from the beach and photography the craziness we get into.
Hours of fun have been sparked by just this one item.
It is a magnet to fun.
Just dig a hole at the water’s edge and let the little ones play in the pools of water that form after a wave.
One time a counted a dozen little beach friends!
I sometimes find the idea of sitting on the beach, listening to music and drinking something sweet and cold to be attractive, but right now it only happens in my head.
In our season of life this works.
It fits our personalities.
I am sure as Cubby grows our list of things we bring, and do not bring, will change.
Nothing ever stays the same.
Nothing is suppose too.
We just need to ride the wave we are on now and be ready to take up the next one in its time.
…and who knows, maybe someday I will own a cooler.
Cheers to sunshine.
Cheers to simplifying our stuff to amplify our fun.
