Impromptu picnic

August 8, 2012

I was dreaming at work yesterday about going to the beach… And that’s just what I did! Armed with a big indigo blanket, some cherries and olives and avocado toast, and a healthy serving of spontaneity, a friend and I hopped in the car and made the quick drive out to Jacob Riis.

We had the beach mostly to ourselves, save a few families with similar dinner sensibilities and some seagulls and sanderlings and oyster catchers picking in the sand for their own nightly meal. Nothing could have made me happier than having a little bite with my toes in the sand facing the open expanse of sea and sky… Except (!!) a dip in the ocean just as the sun was setting!

(yes, it was chilly, but we weren’t the only ones crazy enough to go in)

Post script – this little trip almost makes me want to get a car. Or at least a beach parking pass!
