There was no question what we wanted to do with our first day on Lopez. Right after breakfast, we packed the cooler and firewood into the car and headed to Spencer Spit, our favorite place to spend a sunny day on the island. We grilled, we played Wiffle ball, we listened to Willie Nelson, we napped in the sun. Fittingly, I ended the day with a red neck (we put sunscreen on the kids, Grandma). Looking forward to day 2 and Kristine’s birthday.
