Today at lunchtime I had to run some errands that already took me near the beach. I figured while I was that direction I should just take my lunch with me. Add a beach blanket and the recent biography of Will Eisner and you got you a good noontime. Because I was only out there about 35 minutes, I didn’t need to deal with sunscreen or get all greasy. I walked on the beach for a few minutes, got out in the water and then piled up on the blanket to eat, lay out and dry.
The big downside of this activity is that it is really hard to leave the beach and go back to work.
