California Beach Picnic
#17 - 1982 Near Dana Point, CA
Our picnics were less about food back then. Our cooler was the perfect table and our Doritos and salsa may have been dinner...along with the beverages resting in the sand.
For about 3 years Don and I walked to the beach almost every weekend. Sometimes we met up with Cliff and other friends. None of us had kids yet and the world seemed so simple then. Here are 3 comments about the photo. 1- Look at our fine hats. That was back in Don's cycling days when he always wore a bicycle cap. 2- What's with Don's grin? As I recall he was trying to recreate Cliff's smile. (Cliff has a great smile) 3- Why is the camera aiming towards the parking lot and not the beach? Don't know, but at least we can laugh at the dated cars.
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!
