This week’s Monday Listicles topic is 10 Things To Do With School. I’m still at Stinson beach since we don’t start school until Sept. 7th, so I’m putting off the back-to-school mode until – well, as long as possibly possible. So, 10 beachy things.
1. Driving over the mountain and seeing this view is one of my favorite things ever. I’ve been coming to this beach since I was six, and it’s the one place that feels like home. Nary a skyscraper in sight.
2. We stay in this box-shaped, simple beach house. Rustic! – it hasn’t been updated since the 60′s! It’s steps away from the beach, and we can ride bikes everywhere so we never have to get in the car. This place brings out the hippie in me.
9. My sister brought a layered salad that was our mother’s “signature dish” – I had forgotten about this salad! (I’ll soon post the recipe – it is amazing.)
10. I’ve been living on the East Coast now for nearly 8 years, and a couple of things happened that made me think I’m a little more EC and a little less Californian these days: first, I smushed a spider with my flip flop and the Californians who felt I should “rescue” the big, hairy fast-moving thing gasped (I felt a tinge of politically incorrectness), but the EC’ers cheered. (I’d do it again!) Then one morning I was cooking breakfast and asked if anyone wanted bacon, and someone said, “I’m anti-nitrates – I don’t do bacon.” Note: This same person asked for a plate of bacon after it was cooked – go figure!
