    Well folks, I WAS on Honeymoon Island, even as close as the Oasis parking area. BUT, as a new person, I thought either there would be signs posted to guide me to the correct spot, or that the rangers, or the folks at the Park Booth would know where this event was to be held. Oops. Since I don't own a smartphone, I left believing I had the wrong date. Soooooo. Can I suggest that next time there is a meetup at a large, confusing location like this, that the people that run the place be informed, and/or that a heading be underlined with exclamation points: SEE DIRECTIONS! CRUCIAL!!! Thanks...

    1 · July 30

  • Isis

    Hi everyone! I have to take a drive there and see where we can be exactly. My schedule is pretty tight so I hope to make it by Friday. Let me know if you want to cook as I would like to be close to the beach this time.

    July 29

  • Gary M.

    There is a main beach which has a south end and north end. There are restrooms and snack bar but no place for a picnic. If you stay on the main park road and continue pass the main beach turnoff you will see a sign that reads “Picnic Area Playground Nature Trail”. This area has restrooms, picnic tables, bbq grills, nice grass area and some sharde trees, no direct access to the beach however. But if you continue another 1/16 of a mile you hit north parking lot. Not much of a walk from the picnic area to this beach. This beach has one restroom at the far end and is rustic. Does have sand and waves, what else do you need. My suggestion would be to meet at the Picnic area.

    • Gary W

      I was there last Sunday. A happy mistake. The entry cost was $4. Got there at 9AM then enjoyed a long walk going north from the north beach pavilion. Then went to McDonalds for breakfast and coffee :) Then enjoyed a walk going south from the south beach pavilion. The dog beach has been expanded. The tide was high. The beach was getting full. Most people go in the water where there are no rocks. I’ll return this Sunday and hope to see you all!

      July 29

  • Gary W

    I’m headed out there now because I need to find 30 small identical shells. Btw, there is a Publix at the north east corner in case anyone wants to pick up something fresh. I am bringing diet and regular Vernors Ginger ale. Originally from Detroit, it's a soda (though you're more likely to hear "pop" where it's found) that Michiganders swear by. It also has loyal fans in Florida and some parts of the Midwest, but can be difficult to find elsewhere. Vernors has a tangy but not-too-strong ginger flavor, a touch of vanilla and serious carbonation, enough that it can sting if you're not prepared. It's a little like a gingery cream soda, and makes Canada Dry taste like Sprite by comparison.
    My number is[masked] 4458.
    Call me so I can find you all : )

    • Marie and Michael C.

      From Michigan and I can confirm: Vernors is superior to all other conventional ginger ale sodas (pop). It's amazing when combined with vanilla ice cream.
