I’m home right now, enjoying the sunshine in my beautiful hometown, Bellingham Washington.
Here’s whats up for today:
Today I’m going for a hike with my friend Fred who has mad installs electric wall heaters. We went to high school together at Bellingham High School. He was the one always sticking around in the electrical shop trying out new things, and I was the one who excelled in PE class, because I loved to try out new sports. We had such a great time on the days that we had a day off from classes.
Ten years later, we’re still interested in the same respective things, he opened up a successful company providing electrical services, and I’m travelling around the US, going surfing in Florida, to scuba diving in California, to rock climbing in Washington state. I love my life!
Look where we went today:
Today we went hiking in the Rockies. Fred was a little out of shape, but I didn’t have too much trouble. We took it easy and had a great time catching up. Because I am travelling so much, we don’t get to see each other face to face very much.
We were talking about a new article on electric vehicles. Pretty amazing how electric cars have advanced so much from where they were at before.
I also got to catch up with his son. We are best buds!
We’re going to Seattle soon to do some bachata!
Take care of your friends and then you create a lasting relationship.
I am an expert tanner!
…I have to be, considering I am from Florida. I hated those summers that I spent working outside at Disneyland and I would end up with the weirdest t-shirt tans. Then I would get into a bikini for the beach, and I would have a dead-white belly! Then I get to start over the next year.
Check out these tip of Tanning Tips on Youtube:
Here are my tips:
1. If you are working outside and don’t want to weird tan lines, slather on the high-SPF sunscreen and get in the shade as much as possible
2. When you are intentionally tanning,
3. Get to know the optimal amount and level of SPF sunscreen that you need to get a good tan vs. not getting burned.
Don’t end up like this chica:
If you need more tips, there’s also this great Tanning Facebook group to check out 🙂
Also, keep in mind that nytimes.com recommends to limit your time tanning.
Currently in Las Vegas. I still feel young enough to enjoy the Vegas strip. We stayed at Excalibur this time and had a $59 hotel stay after agreeing to listen to a time share presentation. Bonus 😉
The best part about staying in Vegas are the pool parties! And the poolside drinks, of course 😉
I’m currently enjoying the beautiful summers close to Seattle. Took a long drive but ended up in Seattle for the evening to enjoy a nice sunset:
Was a perfect day today!
I’m currently living somewhere much colder than FL, so missing the palm trees and sun. Check it out!
I’m Scarlet, and I grew up in South Beach. Miss the waves! I’m not so close to the water now and living somewhere that it not nearly as hot! Will be posting about my life here soon….
