We have one of the State’s best campgrounds on a lake about 15 minutes from our cabin. The day use part of the state park is where I first learned to swim as a child. I have so many wonderful memories of this beach!
While on vacation we visited the beach as much as possible. One day we arrived and there was not a soul around. That is so rare! The only footprints we saw in the sand were from deer.
Not only was it wonderful to have the beach to ourselves, I also didn’t have to deal with the weird looks of setting up a tiny ice cream social tablescape!
Oh, I should mention there was one person at the beach and that was the park ranger (you can see him in the background of the above picture).
Once I found the spot to put our things down, it was so hard since I could chose the whole beach, I decided to play a little.
It was such a beautiful day!
I started my little ice cream social tablescape with some Beachy paper napkins.
See, they really were called “Beachy”!
I used a small piece of yellow and white gingham fabric for a tablecloth.
I told you I was keeping it very simple today at the beach. It was Troy’s Birthday and we decided being at the beach would be the best way to celebrate it, Just the three of us. So, I brought a small cake and some ice cream.
It was windy so, I had the princess go on a rock finding adventure to hold down the small tablecloth.
Don’t you love polka dots! I really adore them in dishes. I bought four of these ceramic dessert plates last summer clearanced at a small variety store. I bought one in red, one in blue, one in yellow and one green one. they say “summer” to me.
I have a set of six of these fun and colorful sundae spoons. they were clearanced at Dollar General last summer. And the frosted sundae glasses were a yard sale find years ago.
So, just a fun and simple time spent at the beach.
This is why it is called Clear Lake.
Day of relaxing……. Collecting shells as memory treasures of a fun vacation.
……Pretending you are a mermaid.
……Building magical kingdoms.
And just enjoying a beautiful day with the most important people in your life. It doesn’t get better than that!
