Day 1, Saturday, July 1, 2017
Fourth of July weekend, I went down for the long weekend to the Hood Canal on the Olympic Peninsula. I drove down Saturday morning, with a plan to meet Brent and potentially do some hiking that day. Several more friends were going to be coming and going all weekend. Once I got there, Brent and I went to the grocery store, and then the idea of just hanging out in the sun on the deck took over… Joel, Brandon and Brandon’s daughter met us there too, and we all just had a relaxing day chatting in the sunshine.
I made and enjoyed a drink that I was treated to in the same place the year before, a wine spritzer made with citrus Vodka, New Age Torrontes wine, the juice of a fresh squeezed lime, and ice. This, my friends, is the only time it is acceptable to put ice in your wine… This is a fabulous summer cocktail! It was warm and sunny, there were cocktails… Enough said… I even took a nap in the warm sunshine!
Later in the afternoon, we went down to the beach at low tide and picked some oysters for dinner. Dinner that evening was amazing – oysters on the BBQ, burgers, brats and salad… YUM!!! I mean, when the food is simple and made while laughing with friends, you have the best meal ever… I was so happy and lazy that I really took hardly any photos that day, and the ones taken of me are me in a bikini top and shorts, and this is just not that kind of blog… Of course, just this one cropped photo, because the reflection in my sunglasses is of the book I was reading – which is just so typical of me.
What a wonderful lazy day!
