We picked up some Gulf Shrimp at the shop down the street (like you suggested) and I sautéed them in butter, pepper & garlic. Then I cooked the Redfish in the juices left from the shrimp. Ohhhhh, it was gooood! And, yes, we sure did enjoy our stay. We so want to go back again. The hot tub was fabulous after a long day at the beach! More of a resort than a campground, but so enjoyed after a hard few months of 65 hour work weeks! A pleasure meeting you too, Randy!

Montauk County park on the very eastern tip of Long Island. Exquisite sunsets. No reservations just first come first in. Max stay is one week in the summer. Awesome spot.

A word of warning. I was at Padre Island NS in the late Spring. I did NOT camp on the sand, though. The park I was in was about 150 feet from the water, though. Apparently, an adventurous soul HAD camped in the sand right before I got there. An "unusually high" tide came in, and when it went out, the trailer had "submerged" up to the top of the wheel wells in sand (oh and water had also swamped it). Guess it was also a huge project to both dig him out and pull the TV and trailer out of the sand. I think I'd opt for lakeside instead of tidal waters!

We do it on the Texas coast often. Here also, is a shot from Navarre, FL. St Rosa Sound RV Resort, a very nice park and on the sound. If you are new to beach camping, wash the salt film off ASAP and keep a keen eye out for Filiform Corrosion for several weeks after. There is a good thread on Filiform, massively long, but a ton of info: "Corrosion problems with new Airstreams". Worth a scan through if you are going to be near salt.

I'm not familiar with the west coast. Is there any beach camping in Oregon or Northern California?
Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who YOU are.

Most of Northern California has cliffs above the beaches, so no camping on the beach. This is about as close as one can get, at Seacliff State Beach on Monterey Bay (which is more of a big bite out of the coast than a sheltered bay).

Oregon has some broad, sandy beaches around the middle coast, but I don't know about beach camping. Most of the west coast's weather comes in off the Pacific and tides can cover the beaches. Plus there are a lot of environmentally sensitive areas, so camping in popular areas, such as beaches, is usually confined.

We recently spent 3 nights right on the beach, just south of the Malaquite campground at Padre island NS.

Spectacular, but cold. We suffered thru for the privilege of the experience and the joy of watching Lily run her little legs off.

Doug took this picture from the doorway our last morning, when the sun was out for about 5 minutes. One of two, brief glimpses of sunshine while we were there.

Pics upside down posted from the IPad.....sorry
