The Point Air Station Is Closed

When the pole was pushed back the escaping air dug a big hole.

The other day the point’s air station was damaged. A vehicle hit one of the posts and pushed the air pipes apart underground. I have no idea when it will be open again. The next closest station is Navy Crossing. You can get there one of two ways. Drive across the walk on beach at the bathhouse, or go around through the park. Even better have your own compressor on hand. If you drive around, be careful of hard turns and stops on pavement, so you don’t pop a tire bead.

If you do drive to Navy crossing via the beach, be careful at high tide the beach gets skinny at the great dune. Also look out for holes on the walk on beach, the beaches are not groomed this time of year. Oh, and maybe look out for people.
In case anyone is curious I already confirmed with the rangers it is okay to cut across the walk on beach at the bathhouse to access navy crossing via the point beach.

This is how you park at the air station. Head in parking and to the side of the post.
