And, perhaps, equally tempting is their wide array of refreshing ice creams of many flavors in addition to key lime.  Click on their ice cream link to salivate over all their flavors.

Our buses will be parked throughout the day in the Ron Jon’s lot, so you can drop off your purchases and ride the bus back to the beach. 

At 3:45 we will depart the beach and drive about 1 ¼  hrs. to Winter Garden for dinner.  Within one large parking lot, you would have the following choice of restaurants:

Romano’s Macaroni Grill                 Little Greek Fresh Grill Bonefish Grill                           Bonefish Grill                                   Aji Sushi Teppan (Japanese)                

Five Guys Burgers                           Firehouse Subs                                   

Arby’s, McD’s                                   UNO Pizzeria

And Starbucks to keep you awake !

We allot 90 minutes for dining and reboarding the buses.  At 6:30, we depart for Lamers Bus Yard, arriving at about 7:15.


Liability Waiver:  The BBC has a revised Liability Waiver specific to our club.  This will only need to be done one time; not yearly as in the past.  Please click on link below, print and sign, and give the form to your bus leader on this trip. 

If we promise not to bury YOU in the sand, might you want to join us for some fun at the     

 Shepard Park in Cocoa Beach

           on Monday, Sept. 20 – 8:30 – 7:00


If you choose to buy your lunch rather than bring one from home, right next door to Shepard Park are Captain J’s Steak and Seafood –see


But if you thought they only sold pies, gaze upon their selection of Key Lime Beers, Key Lime Cooler Cookies, Key Lime Candies, Key Lime Candles, Key Lime Chocolates, Key Lime Pretzels, Key Lime Wines and a selection of over 500+ different Hot Sauces, Grilling Sauces and Marinades.  I asked about the ability to take home a pie during a four-hour return trip and was told they offer frozen pies which would be perfect when you arrive home.

Upon entering you are greeted and treated as though you are visiting an enchanted island and as an attraction, given a guided tour of the store -- a working gourmet dessert production facility.

We would like to welcome all club members who are fully vaccinated by September 1st, to join us on this trip.   Shepard Park is a 5-acre, ocean-front park providing picnic, shower, and restroom facilities for guests. The Park was named after astronaut Alan Shepard and provides an excellent view of space launches. Facilities include 10 large picnic pavilions, several smaller covered picnic tables and a bathhouse.  In addition to strolling along the beach, there is also a very long wooden boardwalk parallel to the water.  Perhaps most important is the year-round life guard.
