By accident this weekend we ended up at Montrose Beach instead of our normal haunt at Foster Avenue.
Normally I pick Foster Avenue Beach for it’s quiet, family friendly atmosphere. But the parking was full and we had to wing it.
Much as I prefer a family beach, I must say I found Montrose Beach highly entertaining.
It is much more lively for sure! I think I passed three different speakers blaring anything from Hotel California to Mexican Pop.
Besides your standard ice cream cart, we saw vendors with long sticks of cotton candy attached and carts full of Duros.
We even saw a guy cart in his own drum stove and make tacos on the spot!
There was also a lively outdoor seating area with alcohol service and food. This was a nice addition to the beach, even if alcohol sales it meant there was a line for the woman’s bathroom.
I know America has a lot of problems, but one of our greatest successes is our diversity. While walking back to the car, pot smoking African American youths sat next to a chatty group of Korean grandmothers. Right behind them I spotted a bunch of headscarves huddled together sharing food.
The kids settled right in, doing their normal routine of running everywhere. I’m not sure they know how to walk…
It was another lovely beach day, the last before Jack went back to school. Until next year, beach days!Pin It
