Escaping the Heat, a Picnic at the Beach

Hit the road around 5:30 after packing the picnic backpack with a heirloom tomato salad, butter in a dish, and sauce for crab dipping.  Quick stop at Lunardi's (our favorite local grocery store!) for fresh cracked crab, chilled white wine (to drink in our plastic beach glasses, of course!)  and a loaf of their crusty sour dough bread.

Wish I could tell you that we had a romantic sunset to watch, wish I could tell you that the wind was not cold - but I would be lying.  It was still wonderful.  I got to be on the beach, breathe sea air, hear the pounding surf and watch the fog roll in like waves...



We had a few dinner companions that were very happy to sort through our empty (sort of) crab shells...


I did get my lime green glass photos though!

Oh yum!I think a spontaneous picnic after a hot day is the most romantic, refreshing thing there is. Especially with crab and chilled white wine... for perfection I'd have a beach fire too, not legal round her ~

I'm with you- a cold, foggy day at the beach is better than NO day at the beach!!!

I still haven't had a picnic on the beach! And truth be told..., I probably won't this year, we just always end up staying home, breathing the sea air from our porch! Wonderful set up..., so inviting!

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
