feel the burn.

i am incredibly sunburned right now, thanks to a couple of hours outside by the water on longboat key on saturday afternoon and, um, a lack of sunscreen. (i know, and the horrible pain from the blisters that are forming on my shoulders is a hard-learned lesson-i haven't been burned like this since i was 13, and i'm the palest person in the world, to boot...what an idiot!)

anyway, angry red skin aside, i'm loving this photo by tim walker. in spite of the sunburn, it makes me look forward to summer and spending even more time on the water...with a healthy dose of spf 50 applied, of course.

  1. ouchy! I hope it doesn't hurt too much, my dear...ahh..the price we pay for a little sunshine. I wish there was more where I am right now!

  2. Oh no - keep your burn protected and lotioned up!

  3. Cold chamomile tea bags. Trust me.

  4. thanks for the tips and the sympathy, guys--diana, cetaphil lotion is my new best friend right now! hayley, i am definitely going to try the chamomile tea trick...
