Grassy spot above the water
The picnic basket is the only thing that makes it look like a picnic here. There's no table, no picnic blanket...and maybe even no clothes on Don? Actually I remember this well. My sister was visiting (and took the photo) We packed a bit of lunch and walked down a block from our apartment to where the lovely Laguna homes sat high on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Lucky for us there was a tiny park, so we could pretend we were sort of sitting in our front yard for lunch. Those were the days.
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!
