Breakfast at the Beach


My daughters know me well. They had wanted to take me "out" for Mother's Day breakfast. But I spoiled their plans when I bought refrigerated cinnamon rolls for the four of us to have a special breakfast on Sunday at home.

So, they changed their plans a little and told me to keep Wednesday morning open. On Wednesday, the two of them took me to the downtown area of our little town. There's a little a bakery on Main Street and just down the hill is the beach. We each chose a pastry, then walked down the hill to enjoy a peaceful morning at the beach. My daughters brought fresh strawberries and coffee to go with the pastries. 

Our beaches, here in the PNW, are strewn with logs. The large logs make nice places to sit, have breakfast, and watch the water birds dunking their heads beneath the water's surface for a snack. The Washington state ferries come and go periodically. These are the same ferries that whisk my daughters and I across the Sound to one of our favorite get-away-for-the-day spots.

So we sipped coffee, enjoyed pastries and strawberries, and luxuriated in waterfront dining. After a couple of hours it was time for us to return home and get on with our work for the day. I, however, carried that carefree beach day feeling with me throughout the rest of my day.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. What a beautiful morning!

    We live about 45 minutes from beautiful Lake Michigan but rarely go there. I'm not a fan of water. But our son bought a home about 7 minutes from Lake Michigan. Our plan is to make sure to get to the lake to see some sunsets this summer while visiting our son.

  6. Yay to your daughters! What a fun morning.

    A few years ago I started a breakfast at the beach tradition with my kids and they loved it. Wish I had started it sooner! It was especially fun last summer--we were so limited on enjoyable and safe activities and I was thrilled that we at least could continue to do that.

    1. Hi Kris,
      That's wonderful that you could make your breakfast at the beach tradition happen last summer, even when everything else was off limits. I hope you can continue this summer, too!
