Picnic at the Beach


With only about a month or so left in beach season I had the urge the other night to squeeze in a quick evening trip to the beach. Because the sun sets at 9:30 pm we were able to grab subs, soda, and chips before heading out at 8:00 pm.

I love that the beach is only a mile from our house and we can just stop when we have extra time on nights like this. This was one of my summer bucket list items – To have a late dinner at the beach. Whether we made our own sandwiches or bought them I don’t care because we are spending time together having fun!

A quick phone call home and everyone was waiting with their swim suits on and beach towels all ready to go when I picked them up. I think everyone was happy about having a evening swim and cooling off a bit.  We stayed through sunset and even a little after dragging our feet a bit as we left knowing there are not too many beach days left before school starts up again.

Who could pass up this scene for a bit to eat and a late swim? Perfection.

  2. Nice! It doesn’t look cold or windy either! It gets so cold here often in the evenings at the beach.

    I’m 30 minutes away from the beach I’m a wee bit envious of you being only a mile away! Hope you’re able to squeeze in another evening picnic before Summer’s end!
