Yesterday, I went to the beach and while going to the beach is a normal activity, I typically go during the warmer months.
Currently, it’s the beginning of February and already the temperature outside is almost 90 degrees which is unseasonably warm for Tampa this time of year.
The water isn’t exactly warm but it’s great to lay out in the sun. To be honest, I love that the weather isn’t blistering hot because during the Summer, when it’s almost 100 degrees, it is too hot for the beach. During those days, I will go to the beach in the morning and then by 2 p.m., I will leave and find a spot with air conditioning. Then, if I decide to hang out for a few hours, I will wait for the sun to start setting before returning to the sand. Some people will hang out on the beach in the sun all day, but it can be unbearable because even the sand becomes too hot to walk on. A canopy can help with the heat, and last year, during the Summer, there were some people who used portable air conditioners inside their canopy. I have never tried using a portable air conditioner on the beach, but it is something I am open to, especially if it provides some relief during the hottest part of the day. I have a few months before the Summer gets here, which means I have time to do some research to see if a portable air conditioner can perform efficiently outside on a beach. I guess it’s better than nothing, especially if you want to spend the entire day having fun in the sun.
