With Huntington Beach just 10 minutes away from DeLillo Chevrolet, we love stopping off for a lunch break or an afternoon in the sun. When you’re planning your family’s days at the beach this summer, use these simple tips to have the perfect beach day every time.
Protect your gear
Even if your phone is in a waterproof case, store it in a ziplock back when you’re at the beach. This ensures that it’s protected from both water and sand, and the touch screen is still accessible through the baggie.
Meanwhile, it’s easier to protect all of your belongings from the sand when you use an upside down fitted sheet as your beach towel. Just put one item, such as a cooler, at each corner and pull up the edges of the sheet around the items to build a little sheet wall around the perimeter.
Hide your valuables
Hide your money, jewelry, and keys out of plain sight by cleaning out an old sunscreen bottle. This makeshift, low-budget safe will blend in with its surroundings, keeping your valuables out of the limelight.
Some people like having sand in their vehicle as a happy reminder of fun in the sun. If you’re not one of these people, keep a soft bristled brush in your vehicle to help clean sand off of passengers before entering. Baby powder is also a handy tool in cleaning wet sand off of sun-kissed feet.
