Of course the one day that I don't sunscreen fastidiously is the one that we go snorkeling for hours and hours. By the time I realize I'm being cooked in the sun it's a little late. I applied gobs of sunblock, but little good it does when you're a little damp from swimming and you're about to go diving in again.
I really dislike the feeling of really intense sun on your shoulders, when you can feel yourself getting burned. It's not as bad as the current sensation, which is a mixture of hot burning and maddening itch on my entire upper body. I've probably applied about an inch thick coating of after-sun balm already and I plan on finishing off the bottle with Erin in the near future.
