Perhaps it sounds a bit silly, but I got sun burned in this country.
But, first of all, we found a beach that is worth in England, and more, close to Cambridge within a day when the weather has been very good.
And it also looked at first sight as a good beach, so we placed there for the whole day.
And what is more impressive (maybe weird?) was the amount of people get tanning in the car parks just next to their own cars. Some of them were having BBQ and some others reading book. Bu still in the car park!
So, why don’t you get a picture of the sea skyline and have the BBQ in your garden? That’s England!
