Recently, my boyfriend Shahin and I celebrated two years together. The week that our anniversary landed on was a bit crazy so we took it easy that day and packed a light picnic to take to Natural Bridges beach. I prepared simple turkey and cheddar sandwiches along with this salad which I added strawberries to. The weather that day could not have been more ideal and the beach was complete with stellar sunshine, warm sand, and a cool whispering breeze. I'm hoping to enjoy many more delicious outdoor picnics with Summer approaching. More importantly, I hope to enjoy more time with Shahin because he truly brings a element tranquility and love to my daily life!
I have been very fortunate to live in Santa Cruz the last 4 years and I am extremely thankful for the quick and easy trips I have been able to take to the beach. There are so many local stretches of sand that I still have yet to discover, but that is part of the excitement of living in this gorgeous coastal city! I'd love to know, are there any outdoor hangouts in your area that you frequent often?
