En Plein Air Art At the Beach

Never mind that I don't know how to paint.  Can't even begin to imagine how to pick up a paint brush, this would still be a dream day of mine.  Beside the sea; breathing in the salt air, feeling the wind on my face, being soothed by the crash of the Pacific meeting the sand...  Might be just the perfect coastal outing for a late summer, early fall day.

Wanna come?  We could plan a picnic? Fill our basket with hot chocolate in the thermos, (I am not opposed to a bottle of red wine!) and some nice creamy brie cheese, and a fresh crunchy loaf of French bread. Maybe we could still find some late summer red-ripe juicy strawberries or delish peaches on our way to the coast?

That does it, I am now inspired! Learning how to oil paint is going on my bucket list.
