Love this sunscreen - full spectrum, seas to apply, long lasting and other versions are waterproof. My pasty skin gets another coat about every 2 hours.
Magazines!! Last year it was so hot that the glue binding melted. My favorite beach reads are Real Simple, Vogue, InStyle, and Sweet Paul
Lily + Target sun umbrella - its grey to get away form the direct sun every now and then.

Nordstrom August Hat - wide brim floppy hat great for floating on the lake, keeping my freckles to a minimum. Really helps cool you down.
Colman - large cooler when you're shore bound. the goal is to never have to go back to your room. keep extra waters fruit snacks and of course boozy refills. If you're spending more time in the water check this guilty pleasure.

Deluxe water misting fan - need I say more?
Boring but helpful
ziplock baggies (food, oily bottles, melty things)
