  • Questions from email:
    Hi.  My 82 year old Father and I are coming down for the weekend, and really looking forward to it.  I'm not an oyster person, but he LOVES them any way he can get them.  I was wondering if I needed to pack chairs to sit on at the beach, and maybe a t.v. tray.  It would be very difficult to sit on the beach without them, unless there will be plenty of table and c
    chairs set up.  Also, when is the latest to be able to purchase the $30.00 tickets for Friday night?
    We will have chairs & tables set up, so no need to worry about that. It's actually in the harbor, so we won't actually be on sand. You can purchase the tickets that night, as well.
