The site is just a web page, a meeting place, a clubhouse - it's the group that's special.

Done and dusted! I believe there will be throngs at the beach bar trying to catch the bartender’s attention to get served this week.

Ashore. No controversy. Hoping it is dryer on the beach than it is in Boston.
