picnic table

It’s picnic time. In many unlucky places in the world, picnics are associated with May as that is the time of the year when it is finally safe to sit on the ground without risking a cold. In Monterey County, we have splendid picnic weather all year long and plenty of places to do it – not only hundreds of spots to lay down a blanket, but also picnic tables, for example at Monterey State Beach (pictured). But there are more reasons to have a picnic in early May. Internationally, May 1—this coming Sunday— is associated with International Workers’ Day and mass company picnics—huge get-togethers.
