Houston MINI Motoring Society are the Guardians of a 1/2 mile stretch of Galveston Island State Park beach, and three times a year we go out to make our beach spic and span. No, this is not hard labor! In fact, from our experience this stretch of beach stays pretty clean, except for after big storms. And, in my opinion, is the prettiest stretch of beach close to Galveston!
The plan is to meet at the beach at 11:00 am, clean for a couple of hours, and then head out for a late lunch at Joe’s Crab Shack on the seawall. Have no fear – if it is too cold or wet, we’ll postpone the clean-up to another time. But we’ve had great weather for our January pickups the last two years!
If you like we can caravan from the park-n-ride at the intersection of Hwy 288 and 6, drive through Angleton, Lake Jackson and Freeport, cross the San Luis Pass bridge (HMMS pays for bridge fee) and drive along the beach road to the park. Caravaners meet at the park-n-ride at 9:30 am. It takes 1-1/2 hours to drive from here to the beach.
You don’t have to bring anything, except if you have a favorite pair of work gloves! The Texas General Land Office provides us with trash bags and latex gloves. HMMS will bring water and soft drinks.
Galveston Island State Park is on FM 3005 (Seawall Blvd) about 9 miles west of 61st Street on Galveston Island.
Let us know if you are coming, and if you want to join the caravan, by commenting on this post.
