Beach Trip! + Happy (late) Solstice!

Yesterday was the Summer Solstice, otherwise more simply known as the first day of summer! For the witchy types like me, this is an important holiday, one which me and my other half decided to spend at the beautiful Easton beach in Newport, Rhode Island with some friends. It was a long drive, but totally worth the  8 hours of beach time we got in! Yep, I said 8 hours. It was pretty awesome.

The water was beautiful, the sun was shining, and we all left with sunburns, hurrah! Haha, I don't usually burn in the sun, but I do every time I go to the beach. The sand and salt just magnify the sun and make it impossible not to, no matter how much sunscreen I put on. The burn is worth it though!

Now check out some crappy phone pictures I took of the day :D

It really wasn't crowded at all.
Some yummy hummus & crackers.
Some of my first shell finds of the day.
The beach practically empty at 5:30.

I have lots of cool shells and stuff I found that I want to share, I just haven't gotten around to taking nice photos of them yet, and it's too hot for it right now. It's in the 90s here in Mass and the humidity is disgusting. Summer weather certainly came out of nowhere. Hopefully it eases up a bit soon.

I hope everyone else had a great Summer Solstice! Anyone been to the beach lately? Where do you go? Collect anything cool?
