The Grayton Beach Run-Down

Updated to include recommendations from our second trip there in April 2022.

My childhood memories of this stretch of beach are neon blue and neon white, crystal clear, dolphins frolicking, heavy humidity that pushed you down into the sand where you laid all day, only to consistently get searing sunburns that you can thank for the freckles and wrinkles all over your current midlife body. That was not the 2021 jaunt. Instead, our blustery time at the beach will be remembered for sweet friendships, new and old – shared spaces, shared meals, and shared stories. Exchanged tips and tricks. A beautiful inland lake. Kids grateful for companionship, bike rides to and from the beach, continued wrestling, toy and book sharing and spreading, breaking bread together, and putting up with rainy mornings in the trailer only to explode into wiggles with other stir-crazy little bodies.
