10 Things you need this summer
Painting by Harry Dean see more at his website
So with that disclaimer out of the way here are a few things that may need in your quiver of stuff for the summer.
fins - With just a pair of fins, ok maybe just one all two is better but they don't need to match, you can conquer the world! Well maybe not but you can have a lot of fun!
*regarding fins and fit and other stuff see my previous blog entry
sunblock - Always a good idea but I have to admit I don't follow my own advice often enough on this one.
flip flops -The classic summer go to. Get a pair that fits. Something you can easily find in the pile outside your friends house. If you can keep track of these things get a pair that will last, if not just get a cheap pair from the drug store. Better get two cause they will fall apart.
trunks - You need to wear something, there are places best left un-sun-burnt! Unless you only surf at Blacks...
state pass - If the California state park system is still up and running the 130.00 annual pass works out to a dollar a trip. Cheap price for a place to park, a shower and a bathroom.
towel - You gotta have a towel! My current one is green and has a few dangly bits hanging off it (and needs to be washed!)
a hat - Especially if you are forgoing #2 sunblock.
a bike - Blogged a lot on this already. As long as it's not a car it's good!
a book - Lots of classics at the bookstore for cheap (required reading for school) or free if you go to the library.
a smile - What can I say? If you have extras, give one away!
As always feel free to play the home game and add other things in the comments section.
