 Sand, Sun and Fun this Holiday Weekend: 

Sea Splashing Tips for any Trip to St. Johns County Beaches 

St. Johns County, FL. – St. Johns County officials project capacity beach crowds for the Memorial Day Weekend and would like to remind beach guests of the variety of services available to make their visit more enjoyable. St. Johns County beachfront parks offer free parking at a variety of locations including Mickler’s Landing, South Ponte Vedra Recreation Area, North Beach Park, Vilano Pavilion, Ocean and Fishing Pier Park, Butler Park East, and Crescent Beach. Visitors should plan on arriving early in the day and consider carpooling, bicycling, or walking to these parks as facilities are expected to reach capacity.

While St. Augustine Beach, Butler Beach, and Crescent Beach normally offer vehicle access and on-beach parking, officials anticipate access will only be granted to four-wheel drive vehicles during the holiday weekend due to an excess of soft sand. Vilano Beach will remain open to two-wheel drive vehicles; however limited capacity may change vehicle access allowed. St. Johns County Beach Services, St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, and The City of St Augustine Beach Police will monitor conditions throughout the weekend and make any necessary adjustments to beach access.

Chairs, umbrellas, and fishing gear are available for rent at the St. Johns County Ocean and Fishing Pier. The pier gift shop will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and offers a variety of products including ice cream, sunscreen, and cold drinks. Parking at the pier is expected to reach capacity so guests are urged to seek alternative transportation. New bicycle facilities, provided by Velo Fest, are available on the north side of the parking lot adjacent to the bocce ball courts.

Beach wheelchairs are available for free on a first-come, first-serve basis. Those interested in renting a beach wheelchair during this holiday weekend are asked to call the Beach Services office at 904.209.0344 no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, May 23.

For the safety of all those visiting the area beaches, Marine Rescue will staff lifeguards between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day throughout the weekend.

Mythica on a Fracking Tour at Noble energy

Mythica Blog: What the Frack is going on!?!?!

Recently I was invited by a friend of mine who is a photographer for the oil and gas industry to go on a tour of a Colorado local energy company, Noble Energy. I went because I am the idiot who likes to hear both sides of a story. I'd also prefer to know something first hand than hearsay. So I went to learn about Fracking. I went on this tour with the same basic knowledge that most of the people I know have about Fracking. 1. Fracking is … [Read More its Good for You...]
