But anywho, I have about five things I wear the majority of the summer and I discovered they fit conveniently into my carry-on-sized beach bag. Add a beach blanket, boogie board, chips and salsa and Landshark and I could live on the beach forever. Maybe. Now how did I discover roughly a week’s worth of outfits fit in my beach bag when I have no need to research this information? When I was little I loved reading survival books about kids who live in the woods or with animals or go back in time all on their own and save the day with their resourceful possessions. Gee, it sure was handy to have that bronchitis medicine in my pocket so I could save the Queen of Poland’s life…or whatever…so I would carry around a fanny pack with a travel kit, first aid kit, baby powder, uncooked rice, pocket knife, shoehorn, et cetera for that rare chance that I’d be riding my bike home from the pool and suddenly be forced to live at the playground the rest of my life! Well, now certain people would make fun of me for being so full of foresight, so I have to cut back my desire to pack/prepare to fake-vacation packing, like below.
All you need for that week-long vacation getaway fits delightfully into your beach bag. Don’t forget some small change for ice cream!
