Fun question--no debates (sharks) Whats in your beach bag?

Our inventory:

-suntan lotion and spray; lip stuff (30/15/8SPF)

-3 bubba kegs; 24oz for wifey, 32oz for me, 48oz for ice water to share

-ipad, iphone, Kindle, magazines from home

-shades and cheater glasses w/cases

-towel clips and extra hair clips

-brighlty colored waterproof plastic container for money, cc and room key

-binoculars (I'm a birder though not much to see on the beach) but they are nice to have

-baby aspirin (reduces risk of sunburn)

-small notebook w/pen

Thats worked for us over the years-I dont think I missed anything in our bag Anything else that might make the beach more enjoyable? Skip the pharmaceuticals in case you are thinking it!

Less than 3 weeks--starting the pre-vaca-party!

All good -- I missed the kiddo stuff cause its just me and her. I forgot ear buds! Brought portable speakers a couple of years back and kept getting dirty looks. I did turn them up after a few beverages so I understand--batteries a prob too. was going to bring something to enhance the taste of water in bubba but gatorade is a good option
