The drive took us a little over an hour. We stopped for a late breakfast before hitting the beach around 11 a.m. Even at that time -- remember it's during the week, toward the end of summer -- parking was free and easy to find.
There were plenty of people on the beach, but it wasn't too crowded.
The waves were high, as much as six or seven feet . . .
And so the surfers were out . . .
Some of them even made it look easy.
A few bathing beauties graced the shore as well.
And one or two seagulls couldn't be fishing on shore.
So for now, it's not goodbye summer; just goodbye to the beach for the day.
