It can get windy at the beach so having a hair tie handy is essential. I really like the spiral hair ties because they don’t leave a kink or line in your hair like most other hair ties do.

  1. Bringing a water bottle is so important so you don’t get too dehydrated! I also always take a book to read 🙂

  2. These are all things that we have in our bag as well. The only added one that I have is sand toys for the littles. Great post, I love the “What’s in your bag” type of posts.
