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.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
