Pet Travel Wednesdays: Beach Day

faithfuladventurerjpg

Nothing beats summer days on the beach—playing fetch in the ocean, burying your paws in the sand, and soaking up the sun with your snout in the air. If only someone could tell our humans that a dog’s needs are as plain as rawhide.

For this week’s pet travel tip, T+L reached out to our Instagram follower Christy Anderson (@faithfuladventurer), whose Chocolate Labrador, June, loves to lounge on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: “My top tip is to treat traveling with your pup like traveling with your kids. Pack plenty of snacks, plan on plenty of pit stops, and don't forget to plan some fun activities with your canine in mind.”

So there you have it—a beach day with your pet is as simple as snack-stop-stroll.

Have your own pet travel tips? Use the hashtag #TLDogs on Twitter or Instagram and your dog could be featured on our blog next!

Trip Doctor: Lolë’s Quick-Dry Swimsuit

Lole quick-drying swimsuit

Q: I’m so tired of my swimsuit taking eons to dry. Help! —Kay Ekblad, via e-mail

A: Here’s the solution: this one-piece from Montreal-based Lolë ($70). The paneled “Maui” maillot is made of chlorine-resistant, quick-drying Swim Tech fabric with an über-comfortable four-way stretch. Need something to throw on post-dip? The breathable and anti-wrinkle fabric of Eco Swim by Aqua Green Shirred Side Dress Cover Up ($85) is knitted out of (yes) coffee grounds, making it sustainable by the sea.

Trip Doctor: 5 Best Sunscreens

Best Sunscreens:  Restorsea Rejuvenating Day Lotion SPF 30

Q: With so many sunscreens on the market, I’m overwhelmed. Have a favorite? —Janet Bakes, via e-mail

A: We took an informal poll, and the cheekily named Supergoop! SPF 50 Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist ($19) is a T+L editor pick. It’s infused with vitamin C (touted by dermatologists as a damage preventer), plus it’s paraben- and fragrance-free, hence easy on your skin. Soleil Organique ($42) makes similar mists in varying SPF’s, with a green-tea scent. For daily use on the face, we prefer lightweight and long-lasting Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ ($38) and emollient-rich La Prairie Sun Protection Emulsion Face SPF 30 ($95). Hailing from Norway, Restørsea Rejuvenating Day Lotion SPF 30 (pictured; $150) contains anti-aging enzymes and moisturizing algae, though it may be worth the splurge for its pretty packaging alone.

Digital Detox: Summer Camp For Adults

2013-w-camp-grounded-logojpg

Color wars. Village communities demarked by wildlife flags. A reveille bugle to wake us every morning. The 325 of us, ranging in ages from 19 to 67, were warned. We were prepped. But it was only when we stepped deep into the cover of 80 acres of cool redwoods in Anderson Valley (three hours north of San Francisco), into a 1970’s boy scout camp straight out of Wes Anderson’s wildest dream that we realized, finally, where we were.
 
Camp.
 
And not just any camp. A camp for adults. Without electronic devices, computers, phones, lights, heat, or watches. We were not to speak about the “W” word (that would be work), what we did for a job (hereto forth to be called “fun” or “play”), and that revealing our names or ages would result in severe punishment (pulling out one another’s hair, strand by strand for each offense). We were asked to hand over our bags of iPads, Kindles, iPhones, Blackberries, digital cameras and a jumble of cords. Mine alone weighed 15 pounds and was giving me a lopsided walk; just one of the many reasons I had signed up for this experience. The offending devices went into a paper sack and were unceremoniously locked away as the campers (again, mostly me) whimpered softly.
