The beach here is so nice, and the water is super warm! Unlike the ocean in LA which is always freezing. They have these cabanas and beach chairs/ umbrellas you can rent, which I've never seen before and kind of neat. I really enjoy the cabanas because I can read without having to deal with the sun in my eyes! Oh yes, I am being a good girl and brought my study material!
I think we definitely under-estimated the sun here! We were out for only an hour yesterday with SPF 15 sunscreen on, and we both got weird red spots from where we missed while half-assedly applying the sunscreen. So today we had to diligently apply sunscreen and try to even it out! I am so glad though that I now have more of a tan! I sincerely believe that being tan makes you look skinnier. Hahaha.
So we will be hanging out in Del Rey for a couple more days, then head to Key West and South Beach. It is my first time in Florida so I want to see as much as I can and enjoy the scene! It's also an added on bonus that I get to meet my fiance's aunts, uncles and cousins for the first time here instead of at our wedding.
And now... I will get off the computer and go enjoy a mojito somewhere!
