Welcome to Nyla's 12th birthday!
We're glad you're coming and hope you'll have a great time! Thanks for being patient as we try to finalize our plans. Our friend Roxanne White (Rocket) has graciously offered to let us host at her home in Malibu, just up the hill from PCH.
We decided to move from the Annenberg Community Beach House because Rocket's house has a kitchen, private bathroom, grill, ample parking, pool, jacuzzi, etc. — basically solved for most of the logistical challenges at the Annenberg. Plus the view's amazing! It's just a longer drive. The property is up a steep driveway and it's a short walk to the public beach across PCH (safe crossing at the marked crosswalk) for those who want to go.
Living in a different part of the home are Rocket's sister, Tori, and a friend, George, and two smallish dogs. Rocket's daughter(s), Jordan and/or Kendra, might also join — Jordan's a surf instructor and played water polo in university and both girls are Red Cross certified lifeguards.
Details / Directions / Maps (scroll down)
Date: Sunday, August 11, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM–6:00 PM — We'll meet at the house first and then head to the beach before coming back to the house for the rest of the day. Don't stress if you get there after it starts — it'll be casual, old school Malibu.
Address: 22261 Pacific Coast Highway / Malibu, CA 90265
(It's roughly 11 miles as the crow flies from Santa Monica. Weekends can be a hairy drive, so plan accordingly.)Take PCH Hwy 1 north about 11 miles until you see Tramonto Bistro on the east side of PCH (22235 Pacific Coast Hwy.)
- Slow down because Rocket's driveway is located just north of the bistro, on the same side of PCH, but before the marked crosswalk.
- Turn right at Carbon Beach Terrace and stay to the right of the sign that says "Carbon Beach Estates", climbing the steep driveway to the house at the top. (You are not going to The Estates.)
- We'll try to have balloons or some visual markers at the PCH entrance and up the driveway to mark our spot.
Bring: The usual beach/pool kit plus water shoes or slippers if you have them. Apparently, random jellyfish sometimes enjoy the surf, too.
Lastly, parents are invited to stay, but drop-off is fine. Just please update the Evite accordingly by EoD, Friday, August 2.
That's it. Looking forward to seeing everybody!

(We didn't check our cell reception out there, but it should be fine.)
