Today was a beautiful day to walk on the beach with a dog or to take photos of the birds.
Although there are signs prohibiting fires and fireworks, they don't seem to be enforced.
I've attached photos of what appears to be a homeless shelter built into a cliff wall and a picture of children digging in the cliff wall.
