There was nothing startling or unusual about this beachwalk except that we noted significant destruction of a staircase and its foundation below the large vacation rentals just south of Moolack Beach.

38 is a large number of people on this section of beach for any time of year but it was a sunny, windless day so it was perfect for beach walking.
