When I was a kid, if you put anything on your arms or legs when it was sunny, it was called "Sun Tan Oil" - the aim (as far as I can remember) was to help you go brown! My father would sit in the back yard and bake himself lobster red, wait for the skin to fall off and then do it all again - buy the end of the summer he was the same colour on his chest as a hazel nut - how back would still be white, because he just sat in a chair!
Jump to today and things are very different. We slather ourselves, and more so our kids, in sun-block and at the beach we take shelter under rather clever self erecting tents. These tents come in a range of rather lurid colours - ours is no exception - and they can stud the beach, looking like strange psychedelic mushrooms - which is ironic when I think about it!
This is the view from within your shelter! I can understand why all these changes have occurred, but it's such a loss for kids to look up into the sky and see an enemy, rather than a marker of long days of freedom.
You can find more shots of the sky at Sky Watch Friday. SM
PS: don't forget the factor 50+!
