We all walked back to Clearwater. I believe the name of the restaurant there is called Gombys. I knew they had food and drinks, so we decided this would be the place we hung out for awhile...or the rest of the day. I did have something else pictured in my mind though. I thought it was just a little shack type stand, but it ended up being really big.

There was just something about this place that I didn't care for. I'm not sure. It just felt cheap and trashy to me.


There didn't seem to be anyone there visiting. A few employees, but none of them spoke to us at all.

We checked out the prices for food and drinks and the family was just unsure of it.

We just weren't feeling this place. I'm not sure what it was, but I did know it wasn't my "paradise" that's for sure.

As the family stayed up at the shack to make up their minds and order, I decided to head down to the beach to take a look.


This is what I see....

They had a dozer out there pushing sand around. Maybe from the hurricane? But it definitely didn't seem like a usable beach to me. I certainly didn't want my child running up and down the beach with this thing moving around.


To the other side there was a small section of beach. But I wouldn't say it was too pretty.

We were kind of disappointed after seeing this and the family met up with me on the beach. They informed me that they decided not to order anything from up there and the employees weren't too friendly.


We contemplated what we should do from here and where to go. I could tell they did not want to hang out at this place.


When the HOHO bus dropped us off, we had inquired when they would be back to this area and how often they ran. Now I know from previous research that it is supposed to run once an hour and I believe it was at the 45 minute in 12:45, 1:45, 2:45 and so on. However, the driver told us she would be back at 2:45 and 4:45pm. (I believe it might have not been running as often this time around because of the rain and weather and there wasn't as many people brought to this area today that normally comes). Hmmm, it was only 12 noon. :eek: We knew there was no way that we wanted to hang out at this place for another "almost" 3 hours. No way at all!


The only other option, I told them, was to walk to the bus stop somewhere down the road and catch the #6 bus. They all agreed that this is what they wanted to do. We'd just catch the bus back into St George and find a place there to eat and away we went.

The grounds here at Clearwater are actually pretty big. I can see why they decided to make this the primary beach over in this area and put a food place here. Plenty of room to spread out.


They did have a playground for the kids.
