I've spent one hour per day, for the past two weeks, baking in the sun while the kiddos are in swimming lessons. The public swimming pools in our neck of the woods are devoid of any shade, so I've tried everything from hats to umbrellas to keep from turning into a crispy kritter. I'm not prone to sunburn, thankfully, but heat makes me excessively crabby, and once you're past 35 you're really thinking about the wrinkles more than the beautiful suntan that you can aquire from long days in the summer sun. The kids love the swimming lessons, so I guess it's just a sacrifice I'll be making every year. Maybe they'll add some cabanas (and an iced coffee bar) when they remodel our public pools next year. I have high hopes.
