When the sun is beating down, and you are grilling on the beach in the tropics, there is only one way to have a picnic -- by dragging the picnic table in the surf to cool off.
There are remarkable advantages. You have an incredibly large finger bowl to wash to your hands. The dishes can be washed right at the table. There are no flies. And the little fishes swim around and take care of the crumbs. Once in a while, they take a nip of a hair on your leg, but that is okay.
Yesterday was Independence Day in these tropics and once again me and some of my friends had a barbeque on a private island beach.
