Afternoon Relaxation

During the heat of the afternoon, you may want to head down to the beach with your blankets, chairs and don't forget the sunscreen. You may want to frolic in the water or be brave and head out to catch some of those big waves that may just knock you over. A boogie board is great fun also. How about some jet skiing or take to the skies with some parasailing. A great way to relax is to just spread the blanket and soak up some sun, while maybe reading your favorite book that you have had no time to finish. For those who burn easily, it is a good idea to take a big umbrella for some relief from the burning sun.
