My Beach Trip Must Haves!

So it’s that time of the year…spring break, vacations, and that need to explore. I’m not sure about you but I just love to travel anywhere that’s warmer then where I live. In the Pacific Northwest our winters are very depressing! Rain, rain and more rain! My husband and I are gearing up for another trip to Roatan, Honduras in a few weeks. This time we are building a house and then staying on for additional vacation time. July 2016 is our 10 year wedding anniversary so we are going to celebrate a little early on this amazing island!

I had the opportunity to partner with Home Away for this post to share my favorite beach must haves! These are just a few of my favorite items to bring along to the beach.

  1. CAMELBAK Water Bottel:
    I’ve had great luck with these water bottles! They are a favorite in our family we all have our own! We currently have the plastic ones but I’m hoping to get a glass one soon!
  2. Sunscreen:
    I know your mom probably told you over and over to wear sunscreen but seriously WEAR SUNSCREEN!!! I know a tan is nice but protect yourself! You can still get a little color when you wear sunscreen! Last summer we transitioned to sunscreen with less chemicals. Alba has been my go to lately.
  3. Kindle App:
    I love my Kindle App on my phone and my iPad. The app is free and makes reading books so easy! Also I’m not sure if all libraries do it but our local library links up to a website call Over Drive and you can check out eBooks for free! They download right to your Kindle app! I love to lay on the beach and read while I relax in the sun!
  4. Healthy Snacks:
    I like to bring a healthy snack with me to the beach. My go to bars are Lara Bars and also some mixed nuts.
  5. A comfy pair of sandals:
    I love my Sanuk sandals! If you haven’t tried them they are so amazing! I have the yoga sling style. I wore them for 4 days at Disneyland a couple years ago and my feet were happy the whole time! They are amazing! The Yoga Slings aren’t good for water so I want to try out another style that can be worn around water.

I’m getting so excited to bless a family with a new house but also to enjoy the sunshine and the sand! What are your favorite items to take with you to the beach?
