Does anyone remember the lemon ice girls that would push the carts up and down the beach?? I remember my brother getting in trouble for checking out the lemon ice babes (as my dad called them) when he was 8 or 9 (he's 37 now). I haven't seen anyone pushing the carts up and down the last few years we have been down. Do they still have them??

They are still there at least in the summer months. We see them in Surfside every year and we usually have to add about $20 extra to the vacation fund to buy those for the kids.

Yup...still there! I took this photo a couple summers ago, but saw them last summer.

The carts were not in Cherry Grove in mid May. We had ALWAYS seen them before too. They had an older gentleman driving a small beach vehicle with the ices in the back. We also saw a younger woman driving the "vehicle" several days later. Maybe because it was off season they were driving :dontknow: .

The girls were out on the beach last summer near the Bay Watch. I think they have been there every year we've stayed there.

I must have missed them the last few times we were down. Glad they are still around. :cheerleader:

I think I told this story before, but my Uncle once went and purchased one girl's cart load of lemon ice, gave her some additional money, and then proceeded to ride her cart up and down the beach all day selling lemon ice. No idea why he did this, but he is just crazy and does stuff like that.

The dryer buzzer went off just as I was reading the above post, so I was pondering it as I folded laundry.

What was the girl's excuse to her boss for the missing cart, and did she still have a job? What did the uncle do with the cart after selling lemonade all day? Maybe they teamed up and are now in Daytona where she walks the beach with the cart and he stays home and makes lemonade? :dontknow:

Patrish, he returned the cart when he was done. From what I understand, he sold everything and even made more money for this poor girl. He is just a laid back guy that does this kind of stuff. Nothing bothers him at all. He just thought it would be fun to do.
