Life's a beach, but Kimberly Bryant explains why you need sun protection.

I want to write that I think it would have been hilarious if they superimposed our dog's heads on top of our bodies and renamed the show: The Bitches of Coto. Maybe second season, although we will have to find a new dog for Jo -- she gave her two away. The rest of us continue to be hopelessly in love with our doggies. (Too bad it wasn't this episode, then Smokey would have had to put $20 in the family cussing jar for mouthing the "s" word instead of me.) I need to write about sun protection. The beach is beautiful from 3:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. During summer days, children and teens love the indoors of the Science Museum, Twyla Tharp or any other matinee at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, singing Karaoke, fixing and serving lunch with the Dorothy Day House (a nationwide, very impressive program for the homeless), indoor laser tag, indoor rock climbing, Dana Point's Ocean Institute and, our old standby, The Marine Mammal Rescue Center on Laguna Canyon Road. I wear some very attractive sun protective clothing you can find at or Choose long sleeves and long sarongs. (You don't see the Bryants wearing these on the show because they aren't exactly sexy.) Mystic Tan looks pretty good. I also like some of the newer gradual tan lotions, L'Oreal has a nice one, less streaking. Our family slathers on sunscreen every morning. I haven't sunbathed for 19 years neither should anyone reading this.
