#70 Laguna Beach in 1981
I couldn't resist sharing this foggy, picnic photo from when Don and I lived in California years ago. We used to grumble about the "early-morning-low-clouds" that tested our patience.
There's nothing like this ocean view from grassy, Heisler Park on a sunny day... so it can be frustrating. But we didn't complain too much. We lived a short walk from this spot, so we were able to enjoy picnics with many kinds of weather. I see a thermos that makes me think morning coffee...but I see a bottle in the cooler that makes me think wine. Maybe we had breakfast mimosas? I don't remember!
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!
