1. Always pack a swimsuit. Always.
3. I don’t understand how a town can have a completely different feel to it a mere one or two streets over. I’m standing by a bunch of preppy college kids in a check-out line and the next minute I’m looking over my shoulder with my hands in my pockets.
5. I can pack for a week at the beach with a backpack. But I never use any of it. Nylon swim shirt, swimsuit, sandals – for five days.
