After work I stopped by Southern Soul Barbeque (it was just featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives on Food Network) and picked up some barbeque, macaroni and cheese and black eyed peas. I made my way home and whipped up some brownies for dessert. Once all of the food was ready, I packed it all in my picnic basket (yes, I have a picnic basket!), packed the cooler, and put the beach chairs in my car.
Here's a picture of my GPS - look how close we get to park to the beach!
We are so fortunate to have this just a few minutes away from our house - I am so lucky to live here!
