@vonny,
I'll be back anon after I collect photos of some of my beaches (well, mine in my heart), and that will take a while for scanning and such - but first I want to give a link here to our (yes, our) Clary and her Clary's Travel Digression thread -

http://able2know.org/topic/20684-1

I'm going to reread it - which will probably kill an afternoon when I should be doing other things.

Adds - I like Saab and Vonny's beach photos - of course!

@saab,
Makes me very homesick! Haven't been back for a lot of years now, but used to spend a lot of time there. No shops or amusements or anything much - just miles of sand, dunes, fields - peace and quiet and a certain contentment!

@vonny,
As a kid and young woman I loved the crowds and people on the beach and the activities.
Now I might take a stroll in that direction just to watch the sunset, but it is far too many people there.
Just walk down to the not so great beach by our summercabin, take a dip and go back to the house. That is the way I like it now.

@saab,
We had a simple caravan/trailer on a farm just over the dunes and through a wood from the beach - it was wonderful, after living and working in Newcastle or London - both busy cities - to get back to nature and the peace and quiet of the country and coast. I used to find my peace there - enabled me to carry on with a more hectic lifestyle for the rest of the year.

@vonny,
What you say is true; most of us require "rest" from the hustle-bustle of work or living environment.

I lived for 25 years ten blocks or so from Venice Beach (California), a famously raucous place on summer weekends. I walked the length from the marina up to Santa Monica, or segments of that, thousands of times, but mostly at odd times, early morning, winter, weekdays. I didn't mind the summer crowds, interesting in other ways, but it was my place when the sky drizzled or just was chill and blear, and the scene was quiet. Actually, I lived right at the beach, a building on Speedway, a kind of alley, for a few months in '74. (Well, that's another story.)

I still haven't even looked for beach photos, have been reading Clary's thread. Am only to page 13 so far.

Part of "romantic" summers in the good old days.

@ossobuco,
Venice Beach (California) and Waikiki Beach, Santa Monica - all names from books for me - but so good to see photos and hear recollections of places like that. Like Saab says, one can travel well from one's own home - thank heavens that we live in this day and age, when so much technology is available to us.

Can't see myself ever travelling far again - some people do in wheelchairs, I know - but I can enjoy vicariously travelling through things like this thread - amazing how many wonderful photographs have already been posted on it.

@vonny,
It won't be too long now when most people will be able to view these photos in 3D.

@Ragman,
We don't even have 3D tv! I'm not sure we ever will. We have a tv in every bedroom and our family room, and 2 sitting in our garage. Mr. Green
