Go fly a kite! Be a kid again in Ponte Vedra

Sat 11/9, Go fly a kite! Be a kid again in Ponte Vedra: Come on down and spend a fun filled day flying a kite and having a picnic on the beach. The event will be held at the Center pavilion, South Ponte Vedra Recreation area. This is 12 miles south of Mickler’s Landing on A1A, located across the street from the St. John’s Fire Station at 2998 A1A.  The park is on the ocean side.

This event has two options:

1.  Meet at 10:00 am at the park. Be sure to bring swimming gear, a kite & and your cooler with your favorite beverage. Also please bring a dish to pass for the picnic after flying. Picnic tables only, be sure to bring a chair. The leaders will be grilling hot dogs, chicken dogs and tofu dogs. All paper goods and condiments will be supplied. A word of caution! Based on the last visit to this area, the sandspurs were plentiful and painful. Gym shoes or aqua shoes are recommended.  This place is definitely Xeriscaped!

Option 1a. Anyone wanting to carpool should meet at the A1A side of Mickler’s Landing parking lot by 9:30 a.m.  (Mickler's Landing Beach Park, County Road 203, Sawgrass, FL 32082)

2. Optional cycling to the pavilion. It is exactly 12 miles of the most beautiful and natural  cycling in Northeast Florida. There is a large bike lane; any type of bicycle will be fine. If you choose to also do the cycling, please meet at Mickler’s Landing in the rear of the parking lot near A1A at 8:30 a.m. There will be transport for your gear to the pavilion. You just enjoy your ride!

    I don't recommend grilling tofu dogs. Unless they've changed since I made that mistake, they don't turn out well.

    Emilio. I will be bringing a guest who is not a sidetracker. Will you bring a waiver form as I won't be able to print one at home?
    Thank you.

    I love flying kites. I take my grandchildren time to time. It'll be fun to go with adult company. Can't wait.
