Yuk, I'm peeling!
I don't know if you noticed in the photos, but on the first day at the beach I got sunburnt.
I know I should know better after all these years.

So now I'm itchy....
and my back and my legs are peeling
By the way don't you love the finish line?
PS. Looked up peeling and found this.
Why do you peel after a sunburn?
Peeling after sunburn is your body’s way of getting rid of damaged cells. This is necessary because cells damaged by the sun are at risk of "losing control" and becoming cancer. Due to this danger, all damaged cells are instructed to commit suicide by repair mechanisms within these cells. This mass suicide of cells results in whole layers of damaged skin peeling off, to be replaced by other cells underneath those layers.
I told you it was yuk !
