Grab Your Group and GO to the Beach/Lake/Park…when everyone else is LEAVING

As I made my way to the beach with my group the other night just after 5pm, there was a cavalcade of happy beach goers laden down with various beach accoutrements trudging in the opposite direction of my arrival tide. They were sandy and ruddy from the sun and the good cheer of a day well spent at the beach.
