When the sun goes down...that's when we really unwind. Isla has a pretty early bedtime (6pm) and "adult time" quickly follows. Scott and I usually kick back in the cockpit with a couple of cold ones and settle in to watch the sunset show. Sometimes, just sometimes, the sun is so hot and bright as it slips down the horizon that you need a little break. And that is precisely when we bust out our sarongs and clip them up around our bimini to create some shade.
I can't for the life of me remember where or who we learned this from (it was definitely from another boat while we were cruising) but we have found that sarongs have MANY uses on a boat. They are not only great cover-ups and fantastic beach towels (they pack into a small bag, dry very fast and sand shakes right off of them), but they make pretty great 'blinds' as well.
