I saw the orange cones on the beach and wondered if that's a sign that the ocean is dangerous today. No one was in the water. The beach was almost empty. It was a Monday noon.

I went over to the lifeguard's tower and read the blackboard hanging there. Then I called 'Hi' and asked him about it. "Can I go in to about knee level, I just want to feel the water, then I will go to shower". "Yes" he said "that's about the safe area, just knee level. And watch for the drop".
So I put my bag on the beach infront and played with the waves.
It was like a sand blasting. Then while I dug in the wet sand I noticed the waves were almost touching my bag.
After about 30 minutes of joy, just closing my eyes and listening to the changing sound of the waves washing ashore as they approach and the final sparkling hiss as the foam bubbles pop right before the wave returns to the sea.
I played with some string-of-baloons seaweed as a kite (or jugling poi).
At times, two men were looking at a pile of smooth rocks, to my left and a boy was jumping in the water and singing to my right
