The crowd has arrived.
Don't be alarmed. I went downtown to post a maybe to large letter. It wasn't but because I had no trouble getting a parking space I decided to walk.
Beach crowds at Main Beach don't spread out evenly across the entire length of the beach. Most congregate around the Lifeguard tower. And the least used area is towards the north end of Main Beach.
It's always been this way. If 10 people are on the beach 8 of them will be directly in front of the Lifeguard Tower.
And where the people go the Gulls go.
Just one of life's little mysteries.
