Hello! I hope everyone had lovely weekends.

I may have mentioned once or twice before that I have quite a fiery love affair with the beach. My family spends at least a week each summer at a piece of seaside heaven in Maine, and as a result, I have always associated the sun and sand with happiness and relaxation.

Today I dragged myself out of bed at 5:30 AM. I’m a morning person, but even that is pushing it on a Sunday. I find the prospect of the beach very motivating.

As always, I came prepared for a day spent by the water.

I packed breakfast for the train:

mueslimuesli: oats, dried figs, almonds, pecans, soaked with soy milk and yogurt, plus a banana added in the am

 My friend and driver en route to Rhode Island took care of fruit, nuts, and h2o:

water cooler

I put on a comfortable outfit:

And made some sandwiches:

sandwicheshummus, tomato, avocado

Plus entertainment:

reading materialintelligent + not so intelligent reading material

  I’m rejuvenated and just a little sun-kissed. Perfectly balanced Sunday.

What do you pack for the beach?
