Away From The Madding Crowd

Tomorrow is officially the new season, but summer is already in full swing. Although the sun hasn't been cooperating, tourists have arrived and are on the beach in droves. They're most recognizable by the massive amount of stuff they take along - blankets, umbrellas, boom boxes, balls, coolers, chairs, barbeques, towels, lotions/potions and a myriad of plastic digging, paddling, and floating implements.

Walking either north or south from the beach access points, the tourists thin out. Away from the crowds the dominant sounds are the breaking waves and sea birds, and the only distractions are small random clumps of bright pink seaweed, here today and gone tomorrow.
