Beach bumming – Cerro Gordo

Posted October 13th, 2008 under Life, Puerto Rico, Trips & Tours by MicheleP.

After neglecting our beaches since June (isn’t that crazy?!) we spent the past two weekends at the beach. Last weekend we had fun at Cerro Gordo beach. It was a rainy day and so even though it was a Saturday, we pretty much had the place to ourselves.

Here’s Clara

And Libby

Since Libby enjoys the water more (read: is not afraid) she is the designated bucket girl for any castle building activities

While we had a great day at the beach – there was one drawback. I waited until we were AT the beach to put sunscreen on the girls. Well, when we got there, it was raining and so we were all wet – and then all sandy and wet. Have you ever tried to apply sunscreen to sandy, wet skin – especially a 3 year old who is full of wiggles? Poor Clara got burned and wasn’t happy about it. Sorry about that sweet girl!

    What a face!!

    I hope you enjoyed your day at the beach dispite the rain and the wet, sandy, somewhat sunscreened kiddos. ;)

    I couldn’t remember when we had been to the beach last time! Our attempt to go to our favourite beach in Cabo Rojo on Sunday was cut short after 15 minutes when the dark clouds approached very quickly and the sand started flying in our faces :-(
    Putting on sunscreen on the beach is a bad idea also for adults – but I guess it could be used as a peeling session ;-)
