But a picnic always sounds so good

So I was reading this article on Centerstage about one woman’s attempt to picnic and I realized that even though picnics are always in my list of top five reasons I love summer, I usually only get around to having one a year (this year it was my birthday, at the lake, and it was fun but exhausting). Does that mean it should be demoted from the list? My other faves: al fresco dining, late-night still-light walks, farmers markets and the lake.

What would be on your list of top five summer faves? And does anyone out there actually picnic?

    Long bike rides on the lake front, picnics are cool, I’d rather stop for Mexican food at an outdoor patio.

    Thanks, Nikkos! And Bill, in my heart of hearts I must agree – getting served is just so much nicer than prepping and hauling food around. By the time I make it to the lake with goodies in tow, I want to eat and take a nap rather than, you know, DO something at the lake!
