Fun in the Sun
Yes, we can still have fun in the sun! Last year at this time, I thought our days were over at the beach. But I have realized its quite nice to sit under an umbrella in the sand. The only problem is protecting your face and head in the water. You can’t really wear a hat body surfing. And the waterproof sunscreen doesn’t last. I have to admit, Mike got a bit burnt on his nose. And I got burnt a little where the sunscreen didn’t cover. I feel guilty. Mike says I am not a good melanoma wife. Oh well, what’s done is done.
Anyway, this was our first vacation since Melanoma came to visit and we were celebrating clear scans, and our birthdays. We were supposed to go to Disneyland. But we did one day of Lego Land and had enough of standing in line. Instead, we hit the beach. We stayed with our good friends at their beach house in San Clemente two blocks from the ocean. What a great beach town! Miles of beach, a pier and restaurants and a cute shopping downtown all in my favorite Spanish style architecture. We ran in the morning, hit the beach, had cocktails, ate out, slept in, and repeated that for a week.
We loved it!
