Fortunately, I have some handy dandy products that help: hot/cold bags, a picnic basket that is ALWAYS stocked with cutlery, plates, bowls, cups, vinyl tablecloth, napkins, "trash" bags, matches, towels, etc. A beach bag that always has our beach towels, swimsuits, sun screen, etc. and another bag that always has waterproof sandals, camera,sunglasses, clothes for when the sun goes down and the temperature immediately drops 10+ degrees and of course a BOOK!
Yesterday was such a day, and here's what we get to enjoy....just minutes from our home!
That's the Lady Washington, a 1700's tall ship that is currently hanging out in Bellingham!
The view south!
That's Wally! It's not warm enough for me to brave the waters yet, it's got to hit 80 degrees before I'm willing to enter those frigid waters!
It's not just for keeping things cold!
Dinner! Polenta with carrots and spinach and andouille sausage...fruit salad.
Looking south, that's the Olympic Mountains in the background!
And back home....dessert awaits: apricot/cherry upside down cake! Urp!
