    I have had July 15th circled on my calendar for months! Not only is it my Mom’s birthday, but I’m sure she will be smiling down from Heaven when Nico and I walk down the beach!

    Could the winter evening hours be moved to 4:30 pm to allow a bit more time of day light. We are driving from Titusville and are spending more time on the road then the beach.
