Channel Islands (California)

Picnic: A do-it-yourself outdoor meal is often composed of sandwiches from the nearest deli. Channel Islands Provisioners www.cip.bz (805-758-3375) is far more inspiring. Serving Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, the company sells tailored, farm-to-table picnics that are sensitive to dietary needs and preferences. They work with transportation concessionaire Island Packers for dockside meal drop-off. Packages include a light breakfast for the boat ride, as well as lunch and a snack, with picks like steel-cut oatmeal, a free-range-egg frittata, a spice-rubbed roast turkey sandwich and a chopped salad. Dinners are also available for campers.
