Hi,
is it "catch the sun" or "get the sun" in American English? One of my dictionaries says it's "get some sun". I really don't know what's actually used in American English.
Thanks Emotion: smile

PS: the meaning is either staying in the sun to get tanned or get tanned without wanting to, because you are in the sun... or something like that.

Hi Kooyeen

Personally, I'd either 'get some sun' or 'catch some rays'. Emotion: smile

Hi Barb
There were in fact a lot of very nice rays there for the catching over this past weekend. That was quite a welcome change from the previous weekend. We had a Nor'easter and our yard ended up under two feet of water. So, although we couldn't catch any rays, it might have been possible to catch some fish. Emotion: surprise
Hi Yankee,

I'm curious ... how is the weather there by you? Did you catch some rays??? Emotion: cat
