Beach Activities

Hello: All

My wife, two of our grandsons, both age 10 and myself will visit for the first time in Mid. June. We booked a condo at South Sea Club ( Tower 4)

So now to the question. Both boys are very active in sports, and in order for them to come, they had to be pulled from the on going Baseball season. Would it be terribly rude if I did some basic skill drills with them on the beach? Just glove work no batting.

Also we will be Celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary, can you recommend a fine dinning establishment that the 10 yr. olds would be comfortable at.

The beach is very wide. I'm sure you can do some skills work eith your boys without interfering with anyone. As far as dining goes, I will let someone else answer that for you.

As lob says, I am sure you will find space on the beach without upsetting other visitors.

As an aside, there is also a baseball field on Marco on Winterberry Drive - we have used this a time or two in the past with our boys practicing cricket (we're from the UK) - it at least has a bat and a hard ball in common with baseball.

Most restaurants on the island are child friendly. Have a look at the on line Marco Review, which lists the restaurants. Hard to advise without knowing your preferences.

A couple thoughts:

- 10 year olds should like to be on the water for lunch or dinner ... watching for birds, boats, dolphins

- SST4 has a huge beach to play on, hitting or catching

- great tip on the public diamond on Wintergreen .. but it is used a lot by scheduled teams in leagues

- Mackle park is awesome to keep the kids busy at least one day

- cool hip toy ... it is a ball ... is the Waboba ball ... it skips on water ... so get one for the kids if they want to play and throw in the Gulf
