First monthly birthday walk and dinner

New tradition for 2014...monthly birthday walk followed by dinner at the location to be chosen/hosted by member celebrating their birthday. For January, it is Diane Lapointe's birthday and she chooses to meet at the parking lot on North Lido Beach at 3:30 PM to walk about 30 minutes south and back on the beach, followed by a celebration dinner at 5 PM at the Columbia Restaurant on St. Armand's Circle.


If you plan to attend the dinner, please answer the question and comment that you are going to dinner with us so we can make reservations. Dinner reservations will only be taken until  5 PM on  Monday, January 13.

    Just checked the weather for tomorrow afternoon. Looks like a 40% chance of rain. This has never deterred us from showing up, however, and if it DOES rain, the dinner is still on, so come on over to Columbia Restaurant at 5 PM.

    What type of footwear does one wear on a beach walk ? Running shoes, I suppose.

      Some walk the beach barefoot, but others wear sneakers.
