Sunset Picnic

Since yesterday turned out to be SUCH a gorgeous day, we decided to go to the beach for a picnic for supper. I packed a bag full of goodies and we headed out as soon as Matt got home from work. Our plan was to cook hotdogs in the microwave at the family cottage and eat our supper down on the beach. But alas, when we got there, we could not find the key where we were told it was, and despite every effort my man used to try to "break in" to the cottage (including using a credit card to slip the lock, taking out a window, etc.), we could not get into the cottage. What were we to do now!?!? I headed to look for the key again where it was supposed to be, and Matt reached for his cell to call Dad for a more concise explanation to where the key might be. While he was on the phone I just happened to look in a remote spot, and would you know it???? THERE WAS THE KEY!!! We then embarked on the frustrationadventure of trying to make it work in the keyhole! After MUCH fiddling, Matt was finally able to make it work and we walked into the cottage.........only to find there was no microwave! groan Our next option? See if there was any propane for the stove. Thankfully there was, and after this city girl learned how to use it, our hotdogs were cooked in short order and we headed down to the beach to relax and enjoy our supper. It was such a beautiful evening, and we found ourselves just looking around enjoying the scenery instead of eating our supper. :) We stayed on the beach enjoying the sunset and the refreshing sea breeze until it was almost dark, and then headed back to the cottage to just sit and relax for a bit before heading home. After a while, we packed up and started on our way back home....none too soon either, because before we made it home (about 15 minutes away), clouds rolled in, lightning was streaking the sky, and the rain was beginning to fall!! We were in for a thunderstorm that lasted about an hour or so. Who would have thought that earlier that evening we enjoyed the perfect weather for a picnic??? That's Maine weather for you! :)

In the cottage.
