Mucking about in boats

My sister and her family are visiting at present. They brought their boat up with them and today was spent out at Cabbage Tree Point, cruising around the bay area. It was such a lot of fun! I'd like a boat, I think, although I wouldn't like to tow it.
Even after liberal applications of sunblock I managed to get slightly burned today. Shoulders and face, mainly. It made me think of the way attitudes have changed; when we were kids, my sister and I would sunbake for hours, coating ourselves in coconut oil to intensify the tan. At the time we were blissfully unaware of the dangers we were storing up for ourselves in later years. Now we both spend time checking our skin for telltale patches.
