Ok, normally when I think of a beach day, I think of shorts, tank top, maybe a cute hat, and sandals. Sorry if I got your hopes up. Since moving to Northern California I’ve learned that a beach day is just like any other day, you’re just on one of the abundant beaches.
Some of our friends had the idea to go to an oyster farm and hang out on the beach for the day. After our second oyster farm, we found a place on a ridiculously windy beach to hang out and grill oysters. I’ve learned that sometimes it has less to do with where you are and more about the company you’re with, so we had a blast, all things considered for the day.
For my attire, I knew to dress in layers. And that sandals would probably be too cold, but there’d be a risk of sand in your shoes. My natural choice then was wearing my Sperry Topsiders. I threw on some bright blue Gap skimmers, a black t-shirt, and a black sweater. I didn’t waste time with drying my hair in knowing it would be a wasted effort and no one seemed to judge me for it. Or at least not to my face.
Oh, and just because it’s windy and 55 degrees it doesn’t mean you can’t get sunburned. I learned the hard way.
