Sunday of Labor Day Weekend!
(cross posted with my other meetup group).
At 7 am I will claim a firepit. I'll bring firewood, one ice chest, a few marshmellow sticks and a big table. Bathrooms and a snackbar are nearby.
During the day you can drop your stuff and walk to the boardwalk, swim and hopefully, r-e-l-a-x.
At night get ready to party. We'll stoke the fire, crank the tunes
sing, dance and see how many warnings we can get from the rangers.
This is a California State Park and no alcohol is allowed. I have a don't ask, don't tell, don't be stupid rule.
POTLUCK: Please bring food and drink to share. I have just 6 cooking sticks to share. They can be used to cook hot dogs or make shish kebobs (meat chunks and vegetables would be fun) or marshmallows.
Make sure your food is safe to eat if left in the sun (or bring a cooler with ice)
Here's a generic list of things to bring:
Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, chair, towel, swimsuit, flip flops, water shoes a change of clothes after sunset (it will get chilly, but the fire will be warm, ahhhh)
Paper plate, cups, spoon, fork, napkin, trash bag
**Someone needs to bring a boom box with music for dancing after sunset...if you got this, post in your RSVP.
HOW TO FIND US
Click on "Sea Bright Beach" (above, under the date and time), you can zoom it or change it from satellite to "MAP".
The State Park sign (in the picture above) says Seabright and Twin Lakes (YES, it may be confusing). I have positioned the icon on the map and it is accurate. I can't say exactly which firepit I will get, however.
Parking may be difficult. Traffic will be busy and the day will be warm and I don't want you to arrive stressed out. Study the map beforehand.
HOW TO KNOW IF YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE???
If the ocean is in front of you the lighthouse will be to your Left.
You may be able to pause the car at the beach entrance to drop off people and "stuff". See the photo above? It says "keep clear" but everyone does it. That doesn't mean a cop won't hassle you, it just means cops aren't usually there. The entrance above is in the upper RIGHT hand corner below.
