Perfect OBX Beach Day


Today was a reminder of all that is best about the Outer Banks in the summer—bright sunshine, a pleasant breeze keeping the temperature moderate and the humidity down, ocean waves manageable. Or, stated more simply, it was a perfect beach day.

Everyone has their own idea of what to add to that perfect beach day and the full list is probably infinite and subject to debate; however, since here at Joe Lamb Jr., & Associates we live on the Outer Banks and love the beach ourselves we thought we would put our two cents of advice into the mix.

There are a couple of things that are important. Sunscreen is a must; a good roasting on a Monday means the rest of the week is spent healing.

Take water or sport drinks—water preferably. Sugary soft drinks are not absorbed into your body all that well and a lot of them have caffeine, which is a diuretic—meaning they make you sweat and pee. A cold beer sounds wonderful on a hot day, but definitely save the alcohol until you’re off the beach. Alcohol is more of a diuretic than caffeine popping a cold one after a day at the beach is a better way to go.

Those are the two most important things to take to the beach. It never hurts, of course, to have a good book, maybe a beach chair and sunglasses. A picnic lunch can be nice too, but remember, anything that goes to the beach with you, should come off the beach, including trash.

Enjoy . . .
