Quarterly meeting @ Reabreeze Rec Center 7 pm
Nokomis Beach (near Sarasota)
|Aug 21||St. Augustine Beach (not the city)|
|Sep 18-22||Florida Panhandle|
|October 2||Quarterly meeting @ Seabreeze Rec Center 7 pm|
By reducing our time a bit at this quiet beach, we’ve preserved two hours to stop--halfway home--at the Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel for dinner.
This may be one of the most simplistic, back-to-nature beaches we offer our members. How does 4 hours of total relaxation in a beautiful setting on the Gulf sound to you? Since there is nothing commercial to distract us, the rest of the world will feel many miles away. As you can see, this park facing the Gulf is lined by a channel leading from the intercoastal waterway to the Gulf.
A modern concession serves only fresh made-to-order food worthy of the short wait you’ll experience. There are also relatively new restrooms, covered picnic pavilions, and simple old-fashion picnic tables under the shade of waterfront trees.

Or you can set up a chair with a good book and occasionally look up to watch boats pass by and see dolphins jumping in the inlet.
Oh yeah ~ there’s also a quiet beach and crystal clear water awaiting your pleasure. To ensure your safety, there are lifeguards on duty year round.
(Unfortunately, they tend to rescue girls under age 25 first.)
Some serious fishing happens in the Venice Inlet. There is a bait shop on site if you’d like to bring your rod and join these anglers. Just be sure your catch can be stored on ice below the bus—out of aromatic range!
If this trip interests you, print the reservation form (click on green button below) and mail it along with your check (made out to the BBC) for $25 per person to the address below. On July 1st, we will conduct our lottery and you will be notified shortly thereafter of your seat confirmation or waitlist status. Please note that chairs and umbrellas are NOT available for rent at this beach.
On July 17, we’ll travel to one of the Barefoot Beachcombers’ favorite beaches
In addition to browsing all that there is to see here, you’ll also have the choice of many restaurants (see http://www.theshopsatwiregrass.com/dining/) to share a relaxing meal with friends. (And those of us whose bus broke down on the way there last year will now have the opportunity to enjoy the Wiregrass venue.)
I/we would like to go to Nokomis Beach with the BBC on July 17th. Enclosed is my $25 check (pp).
