Payson's Shade for the Beach

     For the very first time this year, I will be heading to the beach with my very first great granddaughter, Payson.  Since she already has her bucket hat and swim suit packed I figure I best get prepared.  The beaches of Southern California has been the yearly vacation destination of my 3 grand daughters and I since they were pre-teens.  Nothing can beat the bonding that happens when you put 4 people in close quarters, combined with the fun, excitement and relaxation of the beaches.

     Taking a crawling and tender skinned baby will be a fairly new situation for me.  Guess I haven't done that since road trips to Mexico with my own children in the 70's.  Back then we'd pop up some shade and sort of just live there with that protection.  When in California, we camp out in hotels and at friends homes so we must take more portable sun protection.

     I have found two very affordable items that I thought I'd share.  I'll just show you a pictures and also the company's description -

With a center height of 57-Inch, this shade shelter has plenty of room to give you that occasional relief from the elements or protect you from a long day in the sun.

      One of these items will soon become Payson's beach play house.  And it will be nice to keep the ice chest in the shade.  Of course, Tiffany (Payson's mom) and I will enjoy a break from the sun occasionally.  I'll let you know which we try out and how it works for us.
