Is it normal after being exposed to sunlight for awhile to have small dark spots appear on your skin they look like freckels?

In brief: It can be normal
Well, sun exposure certainly causes your pigment to darken.
However, certain medicines can have a sun-induced hyperpigmentation. Most likely though this is simple sun-induced pigmentation. From what you describe this may be what's called solar lentigo. Of course having a dermatologist examine it will help you confirm the answer.
