“I can’t cook, as you know, Marilla, and—and—I don’t mind going to a picnic without puffed sleeves so much, but I’d feel terribly humiliated if I had to go without a basket.” L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
In 2020, puffed sleeves aren’t so much a thing, but picnics are certainly making a comeback as families and couples seek out new ways to enjoy a meal while social distancing.
With the arrival of summer, Cavendish Beach is the perfect place to plan a picnic adventure. Whether you’re looking for a romantic spot to dine al fresco with your beau or an easy-to-access picnic location with lots of green space for the kids to enjoy, you’ll find a place to suit all your needs.
While an idyllic location is one part of the equation, excellent food is the other key to a picnicking experience you’ll remember long after you’ve finished your last bite. Fortunately, the North Shore is replete with restaurants, cafes, and eateries serving up local dishes that will elevate your picnic lunch or dinner to a whole new level.
With most eating establishments offering take-out options in 2020, your Cavendish Beach picnic outing can be a cinch to plan. All you have to do is choose the perfect location and then place a takeaway order filled with picnic-friendly options.
