living in New York is a blessing during the Summer, as we are on the outskirts of an island... which means beaches, oceans, sounds, bays and pools aplenty. a perfect beach bag includes an easy to carry and pack beach friendly tote, filled with SPF (mine, an oil of SPF 6, eek!), a great book or magazine, a couple of pieces of fruit, water and a towel. I've been quite the beach bum of late and to best accessory my perfectly packed beach tote, I've got a perfect beach chair to match! If you're heading out on a sandy get away, I highly suggest and recommend the tommy bahama back pack cooler chair. it's here on amazon for $54 but we picked it up for $25 at costco, so run, don't walk to get yours for maxum relax'n sun time. equipped with back pack-like handles for easy transport, full seat to bed extension, a back cooler for your snacks, spritzers and water and a perfect little pillow, this chair is a thing of summer miracles.
