When the beach-goers arrived for lunch, they colored and drew on the table coverings and enjoyed blowing bubbles just for fun. Laughter mingled with the Latin flavored music in the background. There were colorful napkins and goldfish crackers for snacking. The “sand dollar” cookies and cotton candy were supposed to be saved for dessert. But who doesn’t enjoy the best first anyway?
Raspberry Italian ices really cannot take the place of a cold beer or a strawberry daiquiri, but everyone liked the idea of bubbly drink. The leis and flowery attire the servers all adorned added to the festive atmosphere (there were even some flowers in our hair). Baked honey chicken, rosemary red potatoes, and corn on the cob slathered in butter made the beach bake a smash hit!
Sending off summer with food and friends makes for memories shared. A glow inside comes from kind hearts and full stomachs. We all had such fun!
