San Diego is in the south of California, very close to the border with Mexico. We are thus very lucky and get plenty of hot weather. The beaches nearby are fantastic and the weather is mild even in the winter. I really couldn’t want to live in a city with a better climate as well as access to great beaches and countryside.
Recently, I got quite ill from being out in the hot weather for too long. Despite being used to the heat I gave myself minor heat stroke by staying out too long surfing. My enthusiasm for my new hobby got the better of me.
My doctor recommended that I drink fresh coconut water. He explained that the juice from young coconuts is high in important electrolytes as well as rich in vitamins and minerals. He said it was the best natural rehydration drink I could take.
I used to drink coconut water when I was a kid. Then like so many Americans I switched to coke. I went to the market and bought several green coconuts and took them home. I had to rummage around in the garage to find a hammer and nail to open the coconuts. I enjoyed the rich coconut flavor of the juice.
It is a bit inconvenient to carry coconuts around with you to stop dehydrating so now I take 6 packs of Zico coconut water with me to the beach. I prefer Zico to other brands of coconut water for sale. Since I started taking coconut water to the beach I haven’t had a repeat of sun stroke. Fingers crossed that the coconut water is working.
