Summer Beach Date

On chilly winter days, I like remembering some lovely cheap dates David and I shared last summer.

I packed up a picnic basket with a tablecloth, glasses, jar candle, fruit salad I made. Then we stopped at Moes’ and bought a Joey to split with chips and salsa. We set up our camping table on a quiet corner of the beach. (And here on the Emerald Coast, it’s easy to find a quiet corner!)

Then I set up the beach umbrella and attached battery-lit paper lanterns that I picked up at the dollar store.

The lantern colors even matched the umbrella!

We set up an ipod and cheapo portable speakers from Walmart.
