I’ve always felt sorry for people that don’t live close to the ocean. Sure, there’s peacefulness about forests, mountains and even deserts, but nothing compares to the ocean. I was spoiled. I got to grow up near the ocean in southeastern Connecticut and spent weeks in the Outer Banks as a child. The beach is one of the things I miss most about living in the Washington, D.C., area. It’s not just spending lazy summer mornings lying in the sand that I miss though. I also miss just being able to see the ocean on a daily basis not to mention the lack of fresh seafood is a bit depressing.
When, the editors of The Latin Kitchen asked me to write an article on planning a beach picnic it was easy. After all, all that time I’ve spent on the beach normally included food. What is it about the beach that always leaves you starving?
