It's summertime in LA - and what better Sunday plan then to hit up a beach BBQ with a bunch of interesting, sexy people?

Dockweiler State Beach has BBQ and fire pit areas on a first come first served basis. We'll get there early to reserve a fire pit so we can make a bonfire and stay until the park closes at 10pm.

BBQ supplies, picnic food and drinks (make sure to have no open liquor containers), fire wood, sunblock, hats, blankets, towels, drums, things that float, things that fly, things that bounce ;)

Dockweiler Beach can get pretty crazy on these summer weekends, especially on party nights. The parking lot may be nearly full during the afternoon, so i highly suggest carpooling. But if you truly desire to avoid the chaos this Sunday, I'm expecting the general beach crowd to start dissipating around 7PM.

And for those who wish to comb the beach, I suggest we meet up at the BBQ at 4PM. I'll probably make it by 6PM.

Directions  Head south on the 405 freeway and take the 105 freeway west. This freeway ends but continues on as a highway. At the very end of the highway is the guard gate for Dockweiler State Beach.

The Bad  -- Parking fees during the summer are$5 to $8 per vehicle.
-- If you're lucky, you can park on top of the bluff on Vista del Mar, but be warned that parking tickets are promptly issued a few minutes after 10PM.
-- During summer weekends, this beach is a mad house. In those months it may be better to arrive after 7PM.

Where  Dockweiler State Beach

Notes  There are many things to do here. We may comb the beach, bicycle, watch the hang gliders, or play with fire.

Beach facilities include the bike path, fire pits, picnic areas, volleyball nets, restrooms, showers, and hang gliding park.
