Some Things You Need To Have a Great Day at the Beach


It's the first beautiful day of summer, and you are ready to go soak up some rays. You have your sunglasses and swimsuit, but what are you forgetting? Here is a list of some other things you need to make your day at the beach easy and comfortable.

1. Safety Kit

Even the most idyllic locations can pose some dangers. A Red Cross first aid kit would be ideal. A safety kit for the beach should, at minimum, contain sunscreen, antiseptic wipes, bandages and bug spray. 

2. A Place to Sit

A towel is a given for a beach outing, but why stop there? A portable chair can increase your lounging comfort, and an umbrella can provide a little bit of shade when you have caught your fill of basking in the sun.  Or you might prefer a large blanket to recline on.

3. Appropriate Footwear

Your sneakers may seem comfortable in the car ride to the beach, but they may get too hot as the day progresses. Instead, you can wear your Pali Hawaiian Shoes when you're not running barefoot into the surf.

4. Entertainment

The idea of lying on the beach, doing nothing all day, may sound like bliss, but at some point you may want to have something to do. You can bring the new novel you've been meaning to read. If you are at the beach with a group, consider bringing a Frisbee or a volleyball and net.

5. Plenty of Water

Staying hydrated is important all the time, but it is especially necessary when you are spending a day outside in the sun. You can bring a cooler filled with individual water bottles or one gallon per person with reusable bottles you can fill throughout the day. 
Hanging out on the beach all day can be fun no matter what you do. Being more prepared with creature comforts can help make it even better, though.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
