OOOPS! sent before finishing. The tanning is a great help to get a good base. Still have to be careful of that close sun starting out,but much easier.
How about those people you approach on the beach and say to them "I think your getting really red,you might want to cover up" They look at you like you had two heads. Later that night you see them and they look like a neon sign & in obvious pain headed back to the hotel because they can't stop shaking. Next day on the beach with socks,
pants,shirts,hats & towel over the head!!!
It's one thing if your trip is hurt by bad weather, accomodations or whatever, but don't let it be a first class BBQ sunburn.
