We went to Daytona Beach on Saturday, which is 2 hours away.  We got there about 10:30.  I had put a little sunscreen on before we left & when we got there.  I'm on the phone & feeling like I'm burning and sure enough, I was!

Should know better!

Here are my burn pictures:

Jun. 3, 2008 at 9:15 PM I never burned until I stopped going outdoors regularly. I spent my days outdoors and would tan quite darkly. Now, I spend 3 hours outdoors and my skin is quite sensitive and beginning to burn.

Jun. 4, 2008 at 10:16 AM That's a bad burn Patty! I used to burn all the time when I loved to lay out and fry, all for a tan. Now I stay out of the sun, b/c my family has such a large history of cancers.
