This is recipe 150 in my project! I think when I get to 200 I will have a nice party to mark it! I am aiming to get to 200 by the end of the summer.
I don't know how many times I have been to the beach in Northern California, but certainly many times. Yet somehow, when we went to the beach in Santa Cruz yesterday, I had this idea that the air would be warm, and the water would be warm, and I would swim and lay in the sun. If I had thought about this carefully I would have remembered that last summer when we went to the beach in Santa Cruz we stopped for hot chocolate on the way home because we were so cold! Somehow I forgot this. It was a very cold beach day yesterday. The water was freezing -- the only people in it were a few surfers, most of them in wetsuits. Plus, it was overcast and about 65 degrees and windy. We still had a fun time, but I felt a little stupid (and cold!) for wearing a tank top and shorts. Plus, since it was so overcast I skipped the sunblock (I know, I know, not so smart) and got really sunburned. Apparently I was not on top of my game yesterday... Here are some pictures of Emilee and me wearing appropriate and inappropriate Northern California beach attire, respectively.
