Going to the Beach, Want a Cold Drink?

No, non alcoholic thank you for asking though. No, I’m talking about something to drink on a hot summers day. Our summer drink growing up was Coca Cola. We’d be out on the beach, swimming, making a fire, yeah, just making a day out of it. Usually we’d have a cooler with us, and mom would usually get a case or two of cola products, some bologna, chips, and bread. Hey! Beach time! We’d get in the trusty blue van and head to the beach.

As a matter of fact its the same beach of my blog picture! Yeah, we had a blast, lord I wish we had portable video cameras like today. Still, quite a few pictures taken, many good memories. Just a day out with mom. There’s this boulder/rock thing we used to call ‘Mother Rock’, story has it she was a woman waiting on a rock for her husband to come back home. She would sit there every day waiting, eventually she turned to stone and continues to wait.

That was our meeting spot for outings, we’d sometimes invite our aunt’s and uncle’s family and make a day out of it. While we’d be playing in the sand mom would always find a nice walking stick and go for a walk down the beach. Uncle and mom would get a fire going, and we’d have marshmallows. Every other time we’d bring hotdogs, man what a blast.

Man, what I would give to just look back with a modern video recorder. Still, we got the future to look forward to now, what with the new generation yes? Lets take  a moment to let the portable devices rest for a day, and just enjoy the sun.
