How many places can you have this much beach to yourself at the height of Summer? I would guess-timate that there is a couple of kilometers of beach there, but there is one other person on the beach - way down in the distance on the RH side. Too small to see without a microscope. Let's be honest. It had been raining on and off for days. That bit of blue sky was the most we had seen in days. The sea had been a bit choppy and quite a bit of seaweed and sea grass was washed up on the beach in spots. And . . . it is stinger season.
For those folk who don't know about our stingers. Let me tell you, they are fairly small as jelly fish go, but they are deadly. Not metaphorically deadly, but DEADLY. There is a stinger enclosure (to keep the stingers out, not in) about half way down the beach but it can't be seen in the photo. So you can still swim, but it is too hot most of the day to stay in the sun for more than a few minutes. Sunburn is another big problem. But in the cool of the afternoon there is no better place to be.
