How to Sunburn your Feet

Do you want to know how to get a really good sunburn on your feet? First, bring your "New England" feet (that haven't seen the sun in six months) to the beach in Florida. Next, rent a beach umbrella. Then, forget to apply sunscreen to the tops of your feet and toes. Finally, fail to adjust your beach chair when the sun begins to creep into your shade!

The tops of my feet got pretty scorched. (The above picture is pre-sunburn.) But that's okay. They only really hurt when I had to wear shoes and, since we were on a beach vacation, that wasn't too often! Even with my burnt feet, we had a great time. We had a much needed tropical paradise get-away. And the sun even followed us back to Vermont. However, my feet remain safely protected in shoes and socks!
