Hey LADA!

Since last year was so fun, we are going to the beach again!  Hogwarts term has ended and it's time for summer holiday! Put on your muggle swimsuits and take the Hogwarts Express to Shell Cottage Beach. A Metrolink all weekend pass is only $10 so we will meet at King's Cross Station (Union Station) and board the 10:45am train to Shell Cottage Beach (San Clemente Pier) and play some fun HP games along the way (unless the Muggle authorities say we can't), grab a bite for lunch then enjoy the sun, sand castles, and surf this popular beach has to offer. We will take the 5:51 pm train back to King's Cross Station and if we are up to it grab a pint when we arrive back.

So, be there or be a pale Muggle!

    Please arrive by 10am to King's Cross Station (Union Station). We need some time to check people in and if you are late you WILL miss the train. It happened to a couple of witches last year and they didnt know how to disapperate and Union Station is NOT connected to the Floo Network.

      This is perfect for me to take the train all the way from Santa Clarita I'll just be there a little early, but coming back is enough to get the last train back. Really going to be putting that $10 to good use.

    Things to do/bring:

    - Arrive promptly at 10am and the check-in witches will check you in and make sure you get the ticket you need for the metrolink (different than the metro). Look for the Platform 9 3/4 sign!

    - Dress in layers, may get chilly in the afternoon. Bring a change of clothes if you plan to swim

    - Bring/wear sunblock, beach towel, sunglasses, hat etc

    - Lunch - there are a few eateries on pier and across the pier. Depending on our group size, we may need to split up. Bring your galleons!

    - Bring your board games for the train ride! All are welcome. We have some HP games to play for the beginning of the trip then we break off and play Muggle games so bring them :)

    I really wanted to go to this event but unfortunately just realized I made plans for dinner that day. Hopefully I will get to meet you all another time. I love HP and NONE of my friends really share the passion =(. Have a good trip to the beach.

    Really want to do this but I will have to make it back to LA before 5 on the 21st, and that so won't happen if I go. Next time, though.
