My friends and I rented a giant house near the beach for spring break last year.
I didn’t really want to pay a huge amount of money for the room, but it didn’t end up too terrible with four people splitting the price of a house.
We were two blocks away from the beach, but it was easily within walking distance. There was a cute little coffee shop halfway from the house to the beach, so we had the perfect morning walk and routine. One afternoon, Jason and I were walking on the beach while Sara was sleeping. Jason and I didn’t realize that Sara fell asleep and she ended up with a really bad sunburn on her back and her legs and her neck. We went back to the house to recover. I turned down the thermostat, so the cold air would blow without stopping for awhile. Sara went to sleep on the couch after we applied aloe to her back. I fell asleep too and I woke up when the house was freezing cold. I wasn’t particularly worried, so I grabbed a blanket and went back to sleep. I woke up two hours later and everyone in the house was asleep. I finally adjusted the thermostat. It was 62 degrees in the house at that time. The next morning, I got up bright and early. Sara was still pretty red and hurting so we stayed back at the house while everyone else worked on a nice tan. I didn’t mind keeping Sara company. I was still pretty tired from the previous day.
