What to Pack for a Trip to the Beach

When it comes to packing for the ever-popular seaside vacation, there are some obvious choices, such as sunscreen and a beach towel. But there are also a few unexpected items you might want to bring along to use in clever ways –  like baby powder (sprinkle it on, the sand brushes right off) and a fitted sheet (use bags and coolers to prop up the corners and keep sand from getting in your sitting area).
