On the week before Christmas, Rocky Point gave to us: early whale sightings, spectacular sunsets, meteor showers, several holiday gift drives, ornament decorating, wine nights, Christmas and New Year’s dinner reservations, and a Mermaid’s Market at Shrimp Plaza…all socially distanced and masked to the gills.
We invite you to join in the holiday season by taking part in one or another of the several food, toy, blanket, and coat drives across the community. Be sure to visit our Holiday Giving Guide.
