  1. Geedee,

    I’m not really sure about where on the beach the block party will take place. I guess you could try Wesley Street because of its parking lot. There is no specific time or location listed. It would probably be a good idea to go to the Whale Festival in Dana Point instead.
    Sorry, there is too little information given. Wish I could help.

  2. Hi Chloe,

    I’m sorry to say I won’t be able to assist you in finding it on a map. This is probably the reason for the hashtag Top Secret. The Branahougans prefer to keep the rustic surroundings and only those who know the trail have the pleasure of dining there. It’s part of their tradition. Watch out for the Fragopytes!
