      Dear Tim, I don't think that you read the information on the meet up site that I have been sending out. This meet up was for brunch first and then to Peanut Island. We arrived after we met for brunch. Sorry you missed us. I sent out detailed information to everyone plus my telephone number too. ann

    It was my first time on Peanut Island and I had a good time chatting with new friends. Thank you An for all of the great organizing - we were always kept up to date and thanks for Roger for getting us on Captain Joe's ferry. And we got off the island just before the storm!

    I was all ready to go and my car would not start. Sorry, I had really looked forward to it and was all packed for a day in the sun. Got my snorkeling gear out and was going snorkeling after lunch. Oh well. Hope you all had a great time.

    I was already planning on being there with other people, but will stop by!! Sure, it is "no alcohol" but loosely enforced!

    Likely cannot make it for 1030am. Be there around 1130.

  • Roger F.

    I vote for 10:30 which seems to be the preferred time (Ann please confirm with a time change for the date and time posted above). High tide is at 7AM and low tide is 1PM. Tim, there are Pavilions on Peanut for shade and there are public restrooms, however, food or drink is not available. Since we will likely be gathering on Peanut at around noon, I will bring a football to toss on the Sandbar which appears at low tide at the northeast area of the island, across from Sailfish...BTW, Lorraine is correct, since Peanut is a county park, alcohol is not permitted on the island...Roger

    • TC

      Roger, thanks for the info. Is water available to drink there or should I bring a small cooler to pack a couple water bottles or something else non-alcoholic?

      September 1, 2013

    • Ann

      THANKS ROGER FINCH FOR ALL YOUR GOOD IDEAS. I JUST SENT OUT ANOTHER MASSIVE EMAILING TO ADVISE EVERYONE WHAT IS HAPPENING. YOU ARE REALLY GREAT ROGER.

    Just need a confirmation in time.

    September 1, 2013

  • Ann

    IT LOOKS LIKE MORE PEOPLE WANT TO START EARLY SO MAYBE WE WILL JUST CHANGE THE TIME TO 10:30A.M. AND BE DONE WITH IT.

    September 1, 2013

    • Mette

      That might be a little bit hard for me but will try and make it.

      September 1, 2013

  • Christine T.

    10:30am is good for me too although I wont be going to peanut island as Iinjured my ankle and will be wearing a leg boot. :(
    So is 10:30 now the official meeting time for brunch?

    September 1, 2013

  • Ann

    The Restaurant has a brunch for $19.99 for Labor Day from 8a.m. to 1pm. Anyone interested in the brunch instead of ordering off the menu. I would like to call the manager at the restaurant to let her know how many will attend. Also, does everyone want to change the time to 10:30a.m. instead of 11:30a.m. Right now, we have a great crowd building for this event. It could keep growing for all those last minute members. I have 3 friends coming from Miami to attend.

      Can easily meet at 10:30 am. Thanks. Tom

    I have not been to Peanut Island and I am interested in going tomorrow. Some basic questions:
    1. is there a place for some shade?
    2. is there a place to purchase water or other refreshments to drink or should I bring a cooler w/ whatever I want to drink?
    3. is there anything else I should know so that I do not get there and wish I had brought something more than a backpack w/ beach towel?

    Thanks.

    I plan to be there for 10:30 but wont get the brunch buffet as I have a limited diet. Thanks!

    September 1, 2013

  • Ann

    JUST A THOUGHT -- IT MAY BE TOO HARD TO CHANGE THE TIME SO WE MAY HAVE TO STICK WITH THE ORIGINAL PLAN AND START AT 11:30A.M. ANY COMMENTS?

    September 1, 2013

  • Mette

    I will join you for Lunch. Looking forward to meet everyone.:)

    10:30 to meet for brunch sounds great. I would like to get to the island earlier. Is anyone else going to do that?

      I like to do brunch

    PLEASE READ -

    I went over to the Sailfish Marina yesterday afternoon. It is really a beautiful place. It reminds me of Key West. I can hardly wait to spend the day there. I think that even if you don't want to eat at the Sailfish Marina that you meet us there, and that we can all go over to Peanut Island together.

    I think that we will also have wonderful weather on Labor Day.

    The Water Taxi goes over to Peanut Island at 10 a.m., 12noon, 2pm and 4pm from the Marina.

    The Return Time is 11:30a.m., 1:30pm, 3:30pm, and 5:30pm. You can return at whatever time that you want. If you all would like to meet earlier for brunch at about 10:30a.m, then we can get on the Water Taxi by 12noon, and have the whole afternoon on Peanut Island. If we meet at 11:30a.m., we will have to take the Water Taxi over to Peanut Island by 2pm which is fine with me since it is probably going to be so hot.

    By the way -- does anyone have a folding table that they can bring? Don't forget the wine too!

    If I need to leave before the group is ready, is it possible for me to get back to Singer Island on my own? Unfortunately I'm on a time limit. Thanks.
