I will try to keep this as brief as possible! Ok, so my husband and I are going to the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon when he gets back from Afghanistan. His block leave is in AUGUST (talk about killer heat in the DR!). While we are there we are basically going to be living on the beach or out on a boat or river or water of some kind! Our hiking trip is even canyoning, so we'll be jumping off of cliffs into water that whole time too!! So what I wondered is how frowned upon it would be to wear shorts and a t shirt or whatever over my bathing suit while we were there? I know how sacred garments are and what they represent. Obviously on Sunday we are going to church and I'll wear my garments (he served his mission there and knows some people, so that will be neat!!) and if we aren't going to be at the beach all day or out on the boat I plan on wearing them, but on the days where we are going to go get breakfast then drive to where our boat is or whatever, am I doing a big no no wearing shorts over my bathing suit rather than changing out of my garments? Basically I'd hardly be wearing them. I am not trying to sound like I'm finding excuses not to wear them, but the heat is also an obvious factor, and as I am not really used to it, if there is an issue with that (not just getting sweaty, but like...heat stroke kinda thing) is it bad not to wear them? I know it's one of those things that is a personal decision between you and Heavenly Father, but I wanted to hear your opinions.
