Sorry it took so long for me to get back about the beaches.
Behind the house that we are renting, there is a paved path that leads directly to the beaches. It cuts behind all of the other homes in this area and is about 400 yards long. But I actually think its a bit less. Like I said before, this area is pretty packed full of rental homes. I was amazed at the asking price for some of them that are for sale. Our rental unit is actually up for sale, all for the bargain price of 2.1 million American dollars. And then four houses down, there is one going for 6.4 million. Outrageous.
Anyway, back to the beach. When we set off for the beach, it was sunny and warm. By the time we arrived, about 10 minutes later, it was windy and overcast.
Homes along the beaches are built right up to the sand dunes.
For being a beach town, you'd figure most of the peeps would be mildly tanned. But nope, I though I was on a beach in England judging by the number of ghostly pale people around. Our little group, since most of us are from Florida stood out like a sore thumb :-) But then it kicked in. Who visits beach towns but mostly tourist.
Well, it seems that you are allowed to surf fish on these beaches. Now, if you have never done this, surf fishing is pretty relaxing. You bring your gear, pick a spot and set up. Just toss the line as far into the surf as you can and then wait. But I can't imagine what there was possibly to catch on a rough day like this.
Well I'll try to explore more of this town tonight. Will post the pictures of the beaches as soon as I can. Peace.
