…yep, that’s the personal allotment for the beach trip. since we’re taking Karen’s car. didn’t even bother to do the comparison of the passat to the corolla, but the mercedes would’ve allowed a bit more room. maybe next year?!
Wonderful brunch at Karen’s – a new strata with red peppers and summer-y fruit salad (sorry, no pictures!) – and a few notes on the trip, thanks to Sara!
Love how we’ve made subtle changes and adaptations since our first trip in 1999 – wow!
Key points for this year:
*everyone gets two cubic feet of trunk space – that needs to accommodate everything (beach towels, bath stuff, clothes, books!!!, cameras, cords, …)
*everyone owns one dinner
*iPods for music – will be an education for all of us
*separate space allocated for stamping/creating, dvd’s, games, one beach blanket (hopefully we’ll have a few sunsets beachside) and “the box” (which holds all the staples we can’t bring ourselves to buy and knives 🙂
*we may not even have a computer (that’s my to-do, to find out if there’s internet) so this could mean a long blog break and maybe some challenges with sharing photos
*8:30 am planned departure from our house – early afternoon arrival at the beach – likely means lunch out (Bud&Alley’s?) before we can get into the condo
*I AM SO EXCITED!!!
