I have a bit of a weird/silly/am I really asking this question today.
What Do You Take To The Beach?
I know, I live by the beach. Shouldn’t I know this? The thing is, I make lots of little trips to the beach. I rarely actually spend big chunks of time there. But a month ago, I scored a great beach tent by accident in BCF. And I want to use it. Which means I’ll be spending more than just bits of time here and there at the beach. (In theory!)
Bought a huge beach tent for $25 at @bcf.australia today. Tried putting it up in front yard. Success!! AND I put it away properly & in its bag. And I like that the sew the instructions into the bag so it doesn’t fly away. Nice touch. Of course the bag itself can fly away but that’s easier to chase than paper.
But because I take lots of little trips, I don’t actually know what is a good idea to take to the beach for a chunk of time.
What I’ve thought of so far:
- Some kind of food?
And of course, I was lucky enough to score one of the elusive Kmart beach carts recently, so my summer is pretty much set with pretty “gadgets” now.
Totally irrelevant to this post, but when we unpacked the beach cart I made an offhand comment to Ben that they felt like much higher quality than I’d expect from Kmart, more along the lines of my camp table from BCF. And then I was picking up some long handled tongs Saturday morning when I saw… beach carts! So I had a quick play and apart from branding and price, I can’t tell a difference between the Kmart ones and the BCF ones. It was just strange how an offhand comment ended up seemingly correct.
(Also, I swear this post isn’t sponsored by BCF, I just keep ending up there to pick up online orders as they seem to send $10 vouchers to members pretty frequently recnetly. Also, they’re closer to me than Anaconda, so…)
Anyway, back to the actual topic at hand… what do you take to the beach? Any food tips? I feel like I don’t know what to eat at the beach.
