I HAD A MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENT yesterday. It wasn’t intentional. I decided to sit on the beach for an hour at just about the time the winds kicked up in gusts. Chairs were flipped. Beach umbrellas were torn apart. Belongings were blown away. And it was painful. A wiser person would have turned around and gone right back upstairs.
We spoke with our friend Judyshannon in Seattle last night and she commented (after first saying, “Oh, boo hoo, poor baby got sand blown on him while he lounged outside his front door on the Mediterranean Sea”)… Where was I? Oh yeah, Judy then said, “A good aesthetician would have charged $1,000 for that. You got it for free.” But I said a good aesthetician would have done a more consistent job and not left me with raw spots all over my body.
At that point, San Geraldo said, “It’s a good thing then you weren’t at the NUDE beach.” And that reminded me of 1993 and the first time I went to a nude beach, Black’s in La Jolla, California. I didn’t burn easily and was already very tan at the time. Although I did protect my privates (I was a bit obsessed with them, I suppose), I didn’t think much about my buns. They were toast. Anyway, I’ve never been to an aesthetician. But at this point in my life, I might be better served by a sandblaster.
AYER TUVE UN TRATAMIENTO DE microdermabrasión. No fue intencional. Decidí sentarme en la playa durante una hora aproximadamente a la hora en que los vientos se levantaron en ráfagas. Las sillas estaban volteadas. Las sombrillas fueron destrozadas. Las pertenencias quedaron impresionadas. Y fue doloroso. Una persona más sabia se habría dado la vuelta y vuelto a subir.
Hablamos con nuestra amiga Judyshannon en Seattle anoche y ella comentó (después de decir por primera vez: “Oh, abucheo, al pobre bebé le soplaron arena mientras descansaba frente a su puerta en el Mar Mediterráneo”) … ¿Dónde estaba? ? Ah, sí, Judy luego dijo: “Un buen esteticista habría cobrado $1.000 por eso. Lo obtienes gratis.” Pero dije que un buen esteticista habría hecho un trabajo más consistente y no me habría dejado manchas crudas en todo el cuerpo.
En ese momento, San Geraldo dijo: “Es bueno que no estuvieras en la playa NUDISTA”. Y eso me recordó a 1993 y la primera vez que fui a una playa nudista, Black’s en La Jolla, California. No me quemaba fácilmente y ya estaba muy bronceado en ese momento. Aunque protegí mis partes privadas (supongo que estaba un poco obsesionado con ellos), no pensé mucho en mi trasero (mis bollos). ¡Estaban tostadas! De todos modos, nunca he estado en una esteticista. Pero en este punto de mi vida, podría ser mejor servido por un chorro de arena.

just seeing pix of the beach makes me smile. today is back to work day; the lockdown has been lifted!
We’ve gone to Phase 3 here, but lockdown has not yet lifted. Even the easing of more restrictions makes me a bit nervous. We’ll still be careful. Hope things go well for you there!
Aww shucks! That last pic was such a let down… 😏
Sorry to disappoint you, but I’m always nude under the clothes.
Be proud of the original finish, showing the life well lived.
Not a worry. I moisturize but I won’t renovate.
That is one word for it! lol
Hope your camera didn’t get blasted……when our sand starts to ‘blast’ around we immediately think about hiding it under our clothes or back in camera bag. Nothing worse than a sand-soaked camera.
Then again, you probably had your cell with you……
Aren’t nude beaches fun! Just letting everything all hang out…….figuratively and literally!
Fortunately I had forgotten my camera, so only had my iPhone. The rubber cover was embedded with sand and I had to wash it when I got home. My gym bag was zipped on the beach and still filled with sand.
Jim… And yes, I love nude beaches. My first time at Black’s Beach, I was surprised by the innocence of it all (except in the gay section in the bushes… which I avoided).
Nice to see , even a smattering of people on the beach……oh when will this end x
Beach has not yet gotten busy, but that was the quiet time of day, and the blowing sand really was brutal. Things are opening up here, but that’s not without its concerns. Don’t know WHEN I’ll visit my brother again.
I am NOT going to say “toasted buns and a raw wiener.”
I will – toasted buns and a raw weiner.
Well, I’m so glad Debra controlled herself and only said she WASN’T going to say it.
Subtle. Like Maxwell Smart. Don’t tell me you have raw wiener. I have a raw wiener. I told you not to tell me.
I’d lep like that for a trip to the beach … even if it was just across the street!
It was with it and always is.
You have such fantastic pictures and always something interesting to write about.
Thank you so much. I regularly have my doubts and really appreciate your kindness.
The beach looks perfect. Was that a shot of broken umbrellas being disposed of or a receptacle for storing umbrellas? Be sure to keep tender parts covered during sandblasting.
Yep. Those were the deceased umbrellas in the trash. Thanks for the advice regarding sandblasting. I think I’ll just keep the crags as they are.
Nude beach? Closest I’ve come is a “health club”.
I was surprised by how innocent it all felt. Families, seniors, everyone relaxing on the beach with no clothes on. I had no idea it would be like that. Of course, as long as I avoided the cruisy area… and I did.
Well, it looks like a beautiful day, despite the wind. I had the same thought Judy did — you’d have paid a fortune for that treatment in a salon! (Just sit on the same beach tomorrow with your OTHER side to the wind, and your microdermabrasion will even out.)
It was beautiful. But I think I’ll avoid that pain.
Just so you know, I’ll be riding your swim trunk flaps to the beach with you since I don’t know if I’ll make it this summer. So I will live vicariously through you.
That’s the best offer I’ve had in years. You’re very welcome. (Oh the photoshop opportunities are endless.)
I like Judy, she’s a funny lady. And she was spot on!
Judy usually is spot on.
That Judy, she’s a clever one! Love the Judys 🙂
I love the Judys, too. And THAT Judy is a smart ass.
