Nice time at Foster Beach yesterday — the water was cold, but manageable for swimming, and the weather overall was perfect — 85F, not too windy, just lovely. I read about half of a novel (P. Djeli Clark’s _A Master of Djinn_, a fun romp), the kids read and swim and buried each other in sand. Relaxing.
Per usual, I gorged on ripe mango with chili, salt, and lime, and elotes. Mmm….
New beach bag was a birthday present to myself — worked really well, with an attached interior pouch which helped keep electronics, etc. organized, big enough for my Kindle to fit in. Like how the mesh lets sand just fall out again. Matching towel available. Link in comments.
Only thing missing — I’m getting old enough that I was kind of wanting an actual lounge chair instead of just a towel; the sand gets compacted and hard after a while. Have ordered one for next time! Might throw some camping pillows in the car too!
