Winter 2002-2003

Snow on SPI??!!

A section of the beach adjacent to a big island construction project (Lighthouse Condos, just north of Suntide II) looks like it will enjoy a white Christmas. When asked how it liked being bathed in bits of insulating styrofoam, the local flora and fauna had no comment.

Sunrise on SPI

This lovely shot was submitted by "Keitha" - a Winter Texan from NY who spends Jan. & Feb. here with her husband. She writes that New York is getting buried in the white stuff and that she is ready for some sand between her toes.


It's a Parade! 12/13/02

..,and by all reports the best one ever! Pictured above is "Sandslave" Dennis pulling "Psychadeli Amy" in their award-winning entry called "Elves on Vacation." The pair won the "Non-float" category and very nearly took the grand prize as well. Congratulations to you both! (Photo by the Amazin' Walter.)

Toasty the Sandman!

Amazin' Walter calls Toasty "the beachbum brother of Frosty the Snowman."

This incarnation of Toasty was created by sandy feet and Fred Mallett in front of Suntide II on Sunday, Nov.24, 2002 as a commissioned piece for a photo shoot.

Catching Some Air....

If you walk the beach at all, you have no doubt noticed the latest extreme water sport to hit the island -- kiteboarding! This is a great shot of visiting Minnesotan Judd Nelson having big fun in the surf - captured and submitted by his wife Diane.
