This park is at the eastern tip of the beach peninsula. It is right off of Thomas Drive, near the condos and beach resorts ( on the calm end of the strip), and the famous "Alvin's Island" beach shop is almost right outside the park entrance gates, but except for the occasional siren, you would never know it.
We had to make a quick trip to get James a new swim suit, his last one bit the dust. He never buys clothes for himself, but he did manage to get a baby blue plaid suit that matches his eyes. No pictures of him in it this time, but as it will be his only suit for the next 20 years I am sure you will get to see him in it one of these days.
We spent lots of time with our friends and their two adorable children. We made banana boats, for desert one evening. If you have never had one you can get the recipe here.
One afternoon was spent at the part of the park called "The Jetty" It is a beach area perfect for swimming with families. The water was crystal clear and cool. So refreshing with that little bit of breeze. Not too hot! Perfect weather for enjoying the water.
It was so relaxing at the end of a day in the sun, to go back to this view. All in all it was a great weekend trip, just a few hours from home. We will definitely go back to this wonderful spot again.
