A warmer than usual May and June's rains brought an early summer to Dover. Not many changes to the community--a few new houses, bungalows, and a tennis court at the marina.
However, one amazing addition are a few open and private beaches to the west of Dover Bay beach. To find them head to the city beach but keep walking along the trail. Cross the bridge but turn left before crossing the wooden raised walking platform through the wetlands. You'll find three cleared small beaches. These are not on private property and they are nicer than the city beach. See my son and our dog Lu sitting on one in the photo below and to the right. The photo above shows the trees that block these beaches from the trail.
The Dish is open and popular as ever with its outside patio dining along the river.
The Lake Club Fitness Center is open for extended hours.
