I am very fortunate to have the beach near me as well as many beautiful parks. I love picnics and barbeques. When my group of friends do things like this, we tend to bring a lot of "kiddy food" such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, various juice boxes/bags, snack pack chips, and candy. It's an amazing time.
I guess my favorite place to picnic would have to be Cades Cove near Gatlinburg TN. We get on a rock in the middle of the river and spread out a blanket. Usually go by KFC and carry some adult beverges. It's so wonderful with all the autumn beauty and running water.
yes at the woods or park with benches or under the tree with hills, anywhere vacant lot where children can just run around and you enjoy sitting on the grass, benches looking at the beautiful nature. It is a pity I am so thin, I get cold and can't do that now - fall season
Just show me green grass ,a river or sea nearby and its picnic time!
I was born beside the Pacific Ocean ,rain forest one side and rolling ocean the other (in fact my dad used to say this is our shopping centre)...lol needless to say many fish frys were had on a blanket as the sun set.
The Great Whites are usually on the Pacific side (California) in the U.S. We live near the Atlantic Ocean and the Florida Gulf ( a few hours away, either way). Plenty of sharks, but nothing of the Great White variety. Hammer heads, Tiger, and Nurse sharks mostly. But, they can get pretty big. Daytona Beach use to get several shark attacks a year. I don't swim in water I can't see whats under me these days. LOL I wouldn't be dragging nets at night so I can under stand why they might feel that way. Even for Flounder ( my favorite fish).
What is your favorite dish to take to an outdoor picnic?When attending a picnic, what is your go to recipe that you always make and take? I usually bring a mayo-free pasta salad, but I'm getting tired of making it...
