The Big Toy Agenda for Pooltoys by the Pool Shore

As we prepare ourselves to squeak at waters edge of the biggest pool in the world (The Pacific Ocean), we’ll be making efforts to do some group activities.  Seaside Oregon has a LOT of things to do, but our group can very quickly outgrow most spaces there for how many can be served at once.

If the weather is bad, we might not do some of the activities and have a short list of stuff for backup activities & ideas.  We’re pooltoys; our short lists are very short.  If you have an idea, please reach out to Baphnedia.
