Picnic in Seaside, Cannon Beach, and Gearhart, Oregon
Next on the picnic checklist is the topic of what food to bring: a picnic is understood to mean a full stomach, or at least the way it should be. A classic picnic food option is simply to whip up some sandwiches and other types of finger foods and pack them all into a cooler or basket (depending on the ingredients), which, when done right, is almost guaranteed to be a hit with all the participants. Another more elaborate option, sure to arouse more intent gazes from fellow picnickers, is to throw a portable grill into your trunk along with some charcoal and an prepare something on the order of shrimp and steak on the barbie.
It goes without saying that a picnic demands the participants to engage in some sort of physical exercise, which means that it is fundamental to bring along a rugby or football, a Frisbee, or cricket bat–whatever you fancy. Your sandwiches, or more emphatically your steak and shrimp, will demand that you go ahead and work up a healthy appetite beforehand, so be sure to wear yourself out a bit.
