May 2014 in Laguna Beach, CA
Laguna Beach is a pretty special place for a picnic, but I'm focusing on the mosaic table and chairs! I don't remember this cute Gaudi-style set up from when Don and I lived in Laguna over 30 years ago. But when visiting Laguna a few weeks ago, I fell in love with the spot. On our last day in town, Don and I picked up soft tacos from La Sirena Grill and hurried to Main Beach in hopes of catching the table for a lunch picnic. Despite the fact a school was having a field trip and some local men were hogging most of the benches...our table was free. Too bad we didn't have checkers or chessmen. Our table had a fine built in checkerboard on top!
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!
