Walk along the Marsh foot bridge, down the steps to the Marsh and explore at low tide. Watch fiddler crabs scammper back to their holes, Try your hand with a shrimp net. Throw out a chicken neck on a string and wait for a blue crab latch on. Fishing from the beach, Garden City Pier or off the Marsh foot bridge at high tide might net you dinner. Garden City Pier has live bands at the end of the pier in the evening. What a way to end a day!
Year Purchased: 1986
About the owner: Being in high stress occupations, we wanted a place where we could really relax when our children were young.
My sisters and their families started renting condos in Garden Sands because it is so convenient to everything. We have had some great times throughout the years.
Now my children have children of their own and come to the beach each summer. We are not quite ready to retire and spending time at Garden City Beach is still the high light of our summer.
Why the Owner Chose Garden City Beach: My husband purchased the property new as a surprise. Living in Central New York, he knew I missed having the ocean nearby. I grew up in the warmer climes of the South Pacific, He wanted a place that offered things for the children to do and yet not be exhausting for us. Garden City Beach just seemed to fit that profile. The condo is located just across the road from the ocean and also has the on site pool that we can relax at. The location is just perfect.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: My favorite time at the beach is in the early morning, when I can sit on the balcony, enjoy the ocean air, read my book or look across at the ocean and watch the sun rise.
I loved taking my children to the marsh and teaching them about the ecosystem and the inhabitants of the marsh. Now, I take the grandchildren to the marsh, where we can catch crabs or shrimp and watch the egrets as they scamper for the shrimp we missed.
