From Sand To Sandwich

December 28, 2010

Matt and I went on a photography walk this morning. The sky is the most perfect blue you could imagine!

We rested on a nice piece of driftwood

Ahhh

And Matt did boy things like break logs

Our walked ended back at the Marsh Harbor so we could pick up the rest of the reading crew for the boot camp

Or rather, the bootcamp that wasn’t!

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum had more fun playing rubberband than working out

Nobody had energy to put in a hard workout today. Larbs and I jogged a very slow 2 mile warm up and then we all did a joke of a circuit. Each person had to think of an exercize to do.

Larbs = plank

Matt = lunge (someone tell him not to let his knee go beyond his toes!)

Matt A. = burpies

Andrew = pushups

Me = rubberband biceps and shoulders

Action!

After showers, lunch was a salad topped with clementine, hummus, bleu cheese, carrot, spinach, vinegar, wheat thins and toast with butter and strawberry jam!

It’s so not normal for me to see sun, sand and water in December. I’m loving the pictures!

Wow what amazing pictures you got on the beach! I love the idea of a photography walk! And it must have been so fun to have a few people to work out with, even if it wasn’t too intense of a workout – at least it was outside!!

Haha- whenever my family and I get together we do “family workouts” which usually entail more goofing off than real exercise. I love it!
Your pictures really make me want to be at the beach. Gorgeous!

Never thought to put clementine on a salad before! Guess it’s like a fresher version of a mandarin slice :). I’m seriously loving clementines right now so I’ll have to give that combo a try soon.

The boot camps you do with your family look like fun! I might be able to get my brother to participate, but sisters are a different story. Maybe I could coax them with food?!?

I love your photo collage and how you pieced it together. Very artistic.

And it’s so great that your family would do a bootcamp day with you ! No one in my family would even talk of going on a run with me.
