Day 16: Alfresco dining

What could be better than devouring something tasty out in the fresh air? I love eating outdoors whatever the weather, but it is certainly hard to beat during the summer months. 

Picnicking offers appeal through the strong sense of community it generates and the benefits of the surrounding greenery or seascape further enhance the experience, making everything just taste better to me!

We had lunch and dinner outside yesterday and it was good for the soul. Eating informally and watching the world go by is a perfect way for me to relax. 

This time of year offers more opportunity for outside dining and often right throughout the day, from morning through til night time. I love eating breakfast outside on the weekend when the weather’s good. It’s the loveliest way to wake up and prepare for the day. 

And don’t forget that a coffee in the car watching the rain with the window open a crack isn’t just as good but it does come a close second if weathering the elements just isn’t going to work for you.
