What a perfect day for going to the beach!! I actually wanted to rent a kayak or paddleboard to do some exploring, but once Adrien and I ran into a SHARK while swimming, we were pretty much adventured out. It was a baby shark that had no interest in us, but still!!
We probably talked about how awesome it is to have this basically in our back yard the entire drive home. The older I get the more I appreciate living in Florida, despite it’s terribly scorching hot summers.
The only inconvenient thing about the beach is the absolutely STUPID amount of sand that you will inevitably bring home with you. It’s in your shoes, the cooler you brought from home (also, in the sandwich you brought from home… somehow!), your bathing suit and every crevice on your body, of course it’s all over the car, and you may never be able to fully shake out your beach bag. Like, ever again. But it’s totally worth it. 🙂
Speaking of beach food, here’s what I packed:
4 hard boiled eggs
100 calorie packs of cinnamon roasted almonds (no sugar!)
a green bar for him, and a hungry bar (you’ve gotta try these – amazing!) for her
Plus a giant container of water
Perfect amount for a few hours in the sun and sand.
Back at the casa, we’ve finished dinner and now I’m chowing down on a childhood dessert — orange sherbet with chocolate chips! Only tonight, it’s the more refined version of real fruit mango sorbet by Ciao Bella with, well… chocolate chips. 🙂 I mostly got the sorbet because what reasonable person eats chocolate chips right out of the bag? Not I!
And in case we don’t eat or talk enough about food in this house, it’s teatime. So goodnight! 🙂
