Fresh Cucumber Slices as Roadtrip Snacks

 Instead of chips, I like  chopping some fresh veggies or fruits to bring on our roadtrips.  Since we have  a good amount of cucumber in our garden, I decided to chop some up and  bring it to our mini road trip going to SandCastle in PA on July 26th.  It was very hot that day so this cucumber  was perfect to keep their bodies cool during the trip.  What I love about it is that, ut keeps your tummy full so the kids  were  pretty much  in business when we  arrived at the  park.
 As I was packing this, the shadow it made was  beautiful to pass up.  So I grab my camera  and took pictures of it.
 This looks like a butterfly wing doesn't it?
Below is a stretched version of a wing.
And to my surprise, a diamond-shapped  shadow was even  a great treat for me.  
I hit two birds with one stone with these cucumbers.  We got nutritious snacks and I  saw some pretty cool shadows including the diamonds.  What a treat!

Cucumbers make for wonderful road food - indeed much better than chips as you have the satisfaction of eating without the calories and hydrating too. A perfect way to eat on the run...

Not a big fan of cucumbers but I love having those veggies in my infused water along with lemon and fresh mint leaves. :) I usually have cucumbers as an enchilada entry with crushed pepper, a pinch of sugar and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Great for hypertension hehehe :) (and melting fats...)

it's a yes for the unexpected diamond shadow, and a no for cucumbers- they wreak havoc with my system.
