<p>I mean, a real picnic, not a snack on a trail.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was met at the door last night by a pic-a-nic basket wielding spouse and told that we were going to joing two other friends for an al fresco supper up on the hill.  "It's FALL!" I said.  "So what?" she said.  I grabbed a coat, hustled a few beer into the cooler and we went off in search of a spot.</p>

<p>Somehow food always tastes better outdoors. </p>

<p>Hopefully you managed to find a place sans dog poop.</p>

<p>Last time was about 8 years ago.  We used to take a picnic basket down to the zoo after hours.</p>

<p>In a grove on the Edgemont side there are two very sturdy picnic tables.  We set up there and surprised the heck out of some mountain bikers who were barrelling through the woods.</p>

<p>Oh, we do it fairly regularly in the summer - generally when we take the kids cycling we have a picnic at the turn around point in a park near a play ground.  Its great if you can escape the yellow jackets.  A nice fall day is probably the best time to do it. </p>

<p>Last Monday...Big Sur.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ok we bought the sammidges and wine earlier, but we sat on the side of a cliff and watched the waves while eating.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I count that as a picnic.</p>

<p> <em>  </em>  I used to eat outside for lunch as many days as  I could at school ( spring and fall obviously !) but this year I get one lunch break a week and I miss the break very much!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>    I like to pack a picnic dinner occasionally to take to the lake on a warm summer evening.  We  go for a swim, and sit at a picnic table with some  good food and enjoy a cool breeze.   As the kids are bigger ( teenage ) they are not as "into" the picnic scene as they were 10 years ago I'm afraid.. and  DH generally abhors eating outside unless he is camping! </p>
<p> </p>
<p> It is a good idea for really inexpensive fun.. ... Might have to put this idea on the   OCtober agenda - thanks for the reminder!</p>
