The hot months signal the start of carefree play and light romance, hence the myriad plans to head off into the surf or hang by the pool with friends. Don't muck up fun times by acting like a monkey. Yes, it's time to strip down, but never go entirely without (a bathing suit or manners). Remember your social graces and for sure you'll beat the heat in style!

Beach Behaved
Don't set yourself and your stuff down in the middle on an ongoing volleyball match.
Do find a quiet and unoccupied spot to sit your ptetty little butt down.

Don't organize a sports activity where a lot of people are sunning.
Do secure a large, free area to have your scrimmage.


Shower & Suit Savvy

Don't hog the shower, then leave a wet trail in your wake-people might slip.
Do limit your cleansing ritual to 10 minutes max, and always make sure to tidy up after yourself.

Don't remove your bikini top or any part of your swimsuit in a public place.
Do respect other people's sensibilities by wearing appropriate swimwear for your body type.


Poolside Polite

Don't track oil, dirt, and sand into the pool water with you.
Do rinse yourself off before stepping into the cool pool.

Don't dive, splash, and belly flop (who you don't know) are swimming.
Do make sure the pool is devoid of any humans before you somersault in.
