There’s not much to do at the beach. One can sunbath (not long and with plenty of sunscreen), read (although not a book one does not want sanded and oiled), swim (becomes boring quickly…and wet), think (mostly garbage), watch people (usually unfulfilling, because most are unattractive and uninteresting), and contemplate the world in front of your eyes (clouds, birds, waves, crabs, etc.). Of course, reading is the most satisfying beach activity, but it is beneficial to rest one’s eyes by focusing on distant features.
Fortunately for you, I had at least one camera with me at all times while on the beach. I can share with you over the next few days a few of the sights that caught my roving eye. This will be more interesting for you than watching paint dry...
