I had this vision for the Islands years ago. Onetime when driving around the Seaplane Basin around the back of DI I imagined a beautiful scene, a sea of colorful picnic blankets with families and friends enjoying the beauty of the day.

I came up with the idea of doing it on full moon days just to help everyone know when the picnics would be. There would be no specific time. So some might go at breakfast, or noon, or the evening. The community picnic would change throughout the day. I tried to organize this a couple of times over the years.
