Near the historic downtown in Salida, there are a few tables beside the Arkansas River where you can enjoy a sandwich and watch the kayakers shoot under the bridge.
Don took this windblown picture of me just before a young man on his lunch break asked if we could share our table. We were glad to share on such a lovely day. We ended up sharing a bit more of the table when the young man's 7 coworkers ended up joining him! I wish they had been in the sharing mood themselves. They had carryout boxes of sushi and pad Thai. We had peanut butter and jelly!
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
