Beach Playdate Saturday

Last year’s beach day was such a hit that we are going to do it again and really celebrate summer! The theme is “Easy Summer Days!”

I hope you can join us at Longfellow St on the beach (near the border of Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach) for a sand-filled and hopefully sun-filled Sunday morning! There is a swing set at the strand and those that would like, can make their way down further to the water. We are going to keep it informal and unstructured and all can come and go as you please. We will “start” at 10am and hang out until at least noon. A couple therapists MIGHT attend but with summer schedules as they are it is up in the air.
