Beaches hereabouts

They sure know how to do beaches around here!

Mile after mile, the road runs along the shoreline, sometimes pulling back far enough that people can build cliff-hanger homes. And the beaches are not always particularly inviting.

Access is often free, and quite easy. Just drive down a short sandy/gravel road and park in a sandy lot at the edge of the beach.

Or bring your horse and run along the w-i-d-e expanse of smooth sand at low tide!
