Last weekend I went to the coast with some friends from the Emerald Valley Regency Society and we had a lovely picnic on the beach at Tierra Del Mar near Pacific City, Oregon.
I had a jaunty new bicorn, and with my blue dress and red spencer and cape, I looked very French Revolution.
It was a gorgeous day for a picnic. Saturday was warm and sunny, with just a light breeze. We were lucky, because on Sunday there was a fierce wind and even some rain.
As we strolled down the strand, we were enveloped by a fog so dense we couldn’t see more than a few yard in any direction. It was deliciously spooky, like we could step out the other side and be transported to another time and place- Regency England, perhaps.
The ocean was swirling around on the beach, creating islands and peninsulas, and lovely safe pools to wade in.
How wonderful to relax on the sand with good friends and good food. Not to mention the fun of dressing up. It was a glorious day altogether!
