Here is the back of the shirts - love!
View from the balcony.... not bad!
Here is our beach house - it was beautiful!
I am happy to report - no sunburn and very little color! My goal when I am at the beach is to spend as much time in the sun with as little sun damage as possible.... I am so very fair! So... under the umbrella i sit with a hat and my SPF 100 :)
Me and D-lo under our umbrella
