Bringing Back Picnics

There is something to be said for nostalgia. Remember the days of driving along the coast with the convertible top down and the wind blowing through your hair until you reached your favorite picnic destination? Or maybe you saddled up for a horseback ride to your favorite spot by the stream for some cold fried chicken, home-made potato salad and grapes for nibbling?

It’s hard to comprehend why picnics have fallen to the wayside over the years, but it’s nice to see beginnings of their resurgence. Picnics are inexpensive and can be tailored to whatever type of event you want to enjoy. They are fabulous for romantic dates, family fun and socializing with friends. Moonlit picnics on the beach with a bottle of wine, some cheese and crackers and a blanket to ward off any chill…and of course for snuggling can make the perfect couple’s night out. A basket full of healthy…and not so healthy snacks and Frisbee or kite flying at the park can create a picture-perfect day with the family. And there’s nothing better than a boat ride to the beach, accompanied by a bunch of your friends and armed with coolers of piled high deli sandwiches and your favorite beverages.

Picnics are also nice to enjoy at Ebb Tide Condominiums, which are right smack dab on beautiful New Smyrna Beach. You can prepare either simple or fancy fare in your modern Ebb Tide kitchen and then walk just steps from your luxurious Ebb Tide accommodations to the beautiful white sand beach picnic area of your choosing. Come on by! The breezes are gentle and the water is warm!
