There was a lot of standing around talking. The primary activity was the sand sculpture contest, although I don't think Pres. Cusick ever announced a winner. Eating of course was a highlight, especially for this activity. The Sarasota Stake Relief Society President, Sister Brown, provided the food -- chicken, potato salad, watermelon, and cookies. There was plenty for everyone with missionaries taking chicken home with them. Fortunately, she also brought lemonade mix, and the missionaries consumed it as fast as she could mix it.
At about 8, President Cusick sent them all back to their apartments. Some of the missionaries had about a 2 hour drive to get to the beach park. But I don't think they minded the drive at all.
