Picnic in the park

Hampton Park, Charleston, SC  
I come from a picnic packing family. My grandmother always had a hamper half packed and ready to go. We'd go to parks and rivers and as a child I have fond memories of packed lunches at Niagara Falls and on the other side of the world Ward's Lake

I asked for suggestions on Facebook for picnic location ideas and this is what was offered. I think I've been to each place even if I haven't spread a blanket and eaten at each of them. 

Angel Oak
Morris island Lighthouse
Cypress Gardens
Mepkin Abbey
Edisto Island
Cannon Park
Magnolia Plantation
Under the Ravenel Bridge
Old Santee Canal State Park
White Point Gardens and walk the Battery

Today we went to Hampton Park and it was fun to listen to everyone's memories of the park - from when it had a zoo to childhood birthday parties this lovely park has happy memories for so many. Great friends, good food, lovely weather and a beautiful spot. I am making the most of the last few days of 2015.
