I also got a bad sunburn on my upper legs and they are extremely swollen. Now before you say, why didnt you use sunblock!?!? (after all, after the last bad burn it would seem obvious), but this bad burn actually happened in 20 min. My boyfriend and I walked outside and realized that we forgot the sunblock. He went back to the room for it, then somehow got locked out of the room, and by the time that he returned, I already had a bad burn developing. I really have no idea why I am having a reaction like this to the sun this year. Someone at work today mentioned that certain types of birth control cause a reaction to the sun, and I have to wonder. I was on one type for several years and never had a reaction, but last fall I switched to a new kind and this is the first summer I would have been on it. Normally I would never have an extreme burn in 20 min and swelling like this, but now it seems to happen every time. Scary and very uncomfortable.
Anyways, the trip was fantastic!! Friday my boyfriend and I drove up to the resort and then went into downtown Lake Geneva which has all these fun shops to visit. We walked along the shoreline and then ate dinner at a really good seafood restaurant (and hey, fish is pretty good for you!). We went swimming and hottubbing for most of the evening at the resort, which was fabulous by the way. Its set on its own lake and has several restaurants, coffee shops, game room, two pools, and lake activities. It would be really fun to visit in the winter as all the lodges are connected by glass walkways and have different areas along the way with fireplaces and reading areas.
Saturday the weather wasnt great so we went winetasting at this little fruit winery a few miles away. After that the weather was getting nicer, so we rented a waverunner and went out on the lake for an hour. It was so much fun! I got thrown off so many times, but it was a blast. Definitely one of the most fun things my boyfriend and I have done together. Then we just lounged around in the outdoor pool before heading off to dinner. We ate dinner at the cutest place we just found while driving around. We sat by this open window with the sun pouring in and ate the most unique food (they had a great menu). Later that night at the resort, we sat and watched the sunset, then went to this huge bonfire the resort had setup.
Yesterday (Sunday), we went to this fabulous breakfast restaurant in downtown Lake Geneva (which is probably where some of that 1.4 gain came from), walked around a bit, and then headed back home. It was a fun trip and Im sad to see it come and go, but I really enjoyed myself.
