Beach Bonfire

Please note*** The beach is down 26th Avenue, turn left onto East Cliff for approx. 200 yds, NOT over by Lake Ave., as the map wording says above (can't seem to fix it) for Car Pooling  - please announce if you have space in your car or are looking for space THANKS **** PS...looks like we may have enough firewood thank you - please let me know if you are planning to bring!! Entertainment starts at 7:00pm.

This is the beach we held a bonfire/potluck last year - meet folks, bring folks, chill out and warm up. Bring some beach-friendly food, if you feel like sharing, great! Alcohol apparently is not "legal" here, but bring plastic containers; anything which looks non-alcoholic-ish. PLEASE BRING FIREWOOD - bring at least a bundle, consenting adults can share. On East Cliff Drive, this beach is between 26th and 30th Avenue. There is parking and restroom facilities there, Beware - restroom closes at some early hour, like 9:00pm, so beer drinking later may involve non-restroom behavior, or hasty dash to nearby convenience (wherever that might be...there are few trees, but I did not tell you that). Anyone into playing music welcome to bring instruments - bagpipes, violins and tubers may need a group consensus depending on ability and number of lessons you can prove or have a mother's note to verify, please don't lobby. BYO chairs, tables, blankets, dogs, beach toys, towels, wheelbarrow or strong friend to carry everything - see you there! Any questions call my cell:[masked]

Please Note: Rain, ice, snow or gails may stop play, in which case we will take a rain check and go for a drink in the Red Room to commiserate.

    Just arrived home from week-long E. Coast trip, & pretty much wiped out. Probably won't come tonight unless I get a sudden burst of energy. Have fun!

    I'm on foot, so I walked. To the wrong place, apparently. Lol! Had to backtrack to catch a bus home (since they stop running early on weekends). Hopefully I'll catch you all at the next meetup.

    Latest update: For parking, check E. Cliff, 26th, Portola (there is a cut-through path through to the parking lot and to the beach, and 30th. If you want/need to call a taxi, Henry has alerted a taxi driver friend, to contact text:[masked] - text him your address or where you parked and want a ride from and he will confirm pick up time. The ride is min. $7.00, so worth it not to have to worry about parking.

    When you arrive, look for the balloons to find our set up and see me to pay the suggested donation for the performers. I will have labels for names....I'm always forgetting mine... and then I can point out one of our helpers if you need help carrying stuff or setting up!

    We have an awesome lineup for tonight and will have portable power - before and after the performances get ready to jam and have fun - really looking forward to seeing everyone SOON!!!

      Hi Blaz, Thank you, great suggestion! Had not planned to BBQ, but if you want to bring one that will be fabulous! I can bring some veggies and kebab sticks to share, maybe a pineapple? If you are bringing BBQ don't worry about the wood. Thank you!!

    anyone know where is best place to get firewood. my dead branches are not good for burning. live in aptos so nearby please. hoping to get there by 5, assuming we can find parking!

    April 26, 2013

    • bill P.

      Janie Stop by my house around 5. I have lots of dry, cut, tree wood. Load up your car, drop it off and if you need a parking spot, park at my house. I'm just up the path two blocks inland from the beach and Moran Lake.

    We checked out the beach and will try to stake out a spot early - may be closer to the ocean, look for balloons. Also parking is limited to 40 spaces in the lot so reach out to a friend and organize a car pool to a lot in the area. Drop off stuff and park, if there are no spaces in the lot.
    A reminder on the location:
    Moran Lake Beach : http://www.scparks.com/moranlake.html
    (From Hwy 1 exit 41st avenue and turn toward the ocean. Proceed on 41st Ave about 2.5 miles, then turn right on Portola Drive. Turn left onto 26th Ave then left at East Cliff Drive. Look for the park and parking area on your left.)
    Any questions call my cell:[masked]
    Drop off the firewood before parking, if you need to!

    Quick update!!! MUSIC AND FUN!! We have booked few entertainment artists to provide an hour of music and beach fun and a special sunset celebration ceremony. If anyone has a guitar, drums, bongos, tambourines, hula hoops or similar, please bring and join in with the celebration, we will have a few extra to share (no bagpipes or tubas, sorry). Entertainment will start about 7:30; please plan to contribute towards the entertainers with a suggested donation of around $5.00. (Please give to my boyfriend Henry, talent promoter extraodiare, since he is in charge of booking and paying folks!)

    Please let me know if you have a table to set up for food, Thanks!

    HI EVERYONE!! The map is correct but the cross street is NOT and I can't change it - it is NOT by Lake Ave - it is down from 26th towards Pleasure Point!!!

    Hello Michele, the beach is right by the road, so up to you - not sure how to answer that question, since it very much depends on level of control you have with your dog staying with you - and this is going to be a big group - I would say play it by ear and comfort on the evening, but play it safe!

    April 9, 2013
