Of course I took that opportunity to pack a bento for M and a fruit box for myself. I fed N before we left home and took along an avocado and some rice cakes for him. Forgot to take picture of the bento, but it consisted of delicious Virginia ham and cheddar cheese sandwich, some grapes, apples, cashew nuts and a mashmallow for the sweet tooth.
The weather was fabulous. A little too hot and sunny but yet with a sea breeze constantly, we didn't perspire at all. We chose a spot and laid down the mat by the beach to snack on our lunch before the boys began their sand play. I just relaxed on the mat, enjoyed the beach and breeze and smiled the whole time.
