I woke up this morning feeling less than stellar. I should have waited to workout, but went for a run on the island despite my hangover. After 2.5 miles, I had to stop. It’s funny, after a mile I felt amazing. My friends went to a spin class on the island and said it was one of the hardest they have ever taken (coming from a Soul Cycle addict). Needless to say, I was glad I did not go. After 25 minutes, I wanted to curl up in ball on the side of the road. I walked the half mile home, made myself some egg whites with pico de gallo on a sandwich thin with ketchup. Hangover cured.
We headed to the beach shortly after where I brought my favorite beach foods, Popchips and the ingredients to make a turkey sandwich. Yes, I made it on the beach!
We packed up the ingredients in my Bento Box, except the lavash bread and lettuce. I laid out my aluminum foil on top of the cooler and made myself a delicious turkey wrap with lettuce, tomato, avocado and spicy mustard.
I was feeling adventurous and added the Popchips to the sandwich. It was a delicious addition. To see how I make my other favorite sandwich at the beach, check out my “What I Eat At The Beach” video.
We stayed at the beach until 5 pm and then headed over to Cisco Brewery, my most favorite place on earth.
At the brewery, they make their own beer, wine and flavored vodkas. The blueberry vodka is my favorite! They have live entertainment and the entire family (plus dogs) can go.
The kiddies were trying to play corn hole but really just enjoyed running up and down the boards. Their feet kept going through the hole, but they didn’t seem to learn. It was entertaining to watch.
Usually there is no food at the brewery but you can bring your own snacks. We were surprised to see raw bar was available and of course Roomie and I split a dozen. I had my first vacation beverage of the day, which was a bloody Mary.
It was a perfect day for the beach, oysters and beer. I swam for over an hour in the waves. I love how the water gets deep quick in Nantucket, unlike the bay side of Cape Cod. Tomorrow, I’m planning to take a Barre class at 9:30 on the island that I found through GoRecess. I’m excited to try a new instructor and studio! My entire house (all 7 of us) enjoy working out, so it’s been fun and easy to be active. Do you workout on vacation? Are you the only one or do your friends join in?
