Above is my checklist and my beach essentials that made it into my suitcase for our beach trip :)
Beach essentials are simple.
Extra-wide brimmed straw hat, sunglassess, cover-up??? Check. Check. Check.
Straw beach bag? Check.
I also always throw in some simple accessories and one easy going dress, just in case we decide to do a dinner out one evening.
With a large stack of reading materials, I really for some proper R&R!
