Look! Look!!! They're everywhere!
This was the main beach here at lunchtime today, on one of the hottest days of the year so far. The tide had just started to go out and, I suspect, there would have been more ghastly people if the tide was on its way out earlier in the morning and it was a weekend.
The reason I'm posting these pictures is that Ms Scarlet, amongst others, has marvelled at how deserted the beach is in my photos. Well, that's mainly because in the summer, I only go down to the beach (for a walk or a swim) first thing in the morning, and when the tide is right in (if possible). I also don't go to this bit, the main beach. No, I disappear up the other end, to the east, which is inconvenient to get to for most families and lazy-arses, and pretty much inaccessible during high tide unless one has fully workable legs and doesn't mind a bit of muddy clay and getting wet.
If - in the unfortunate scenario - I find myself atop the cliff here on a weekend when the tide is out, I will take some more photos. But, I truly hope that I don't have the opportunity, as being in such close proximity to people* almost made me turn inside out in horror, social distancing or no!
* I suspect some of these were the one's that Mitzi threatened me with, here.
