Footprints in the Sands of Time

I know... too deep :)

I took this at Carmel beach yesterday. This is the hardest beach to walk that I have ever been on. It is a coarse sand suitable for making concrete. You just sink in it. I was pooped after 50'.

Incidentally, the proper name for this beach is Monastary Beach as there is a Carmelite Monastary across Route 1. But to the locals it is known as "Mortuary Beach" due to the large number of drownings caused by the incredible rip tides and foolish SCUBA divers who choose to play in them.

Sounds like more candidates for the Darwin Awards! Nice shot, John. Terrible name for a beach! :-)
