It's expected. : Your likely dehydrating yourself despite thinking your drinking enough water. The sun will fatigue you on part due to dehydration and in part to damaging your skin which requires a lot of your body's energy to heal. Remember your skin is your largest organ. Stay hydrated (best to drink water) use SPF and wear a hat and wouldn't hurt to eat a couple of saltines to maintain salt and carbs.
