It was a gorgeous day on the beach. Probably a record day for people because of the warm temperatures. 

Conditions

Temperature: 78 F. Cloud Cover: Sunny. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: NE. Tide Level: 0.0 feet.

Human count was increasing so fast during the hour or so the numbers are a low estimate. I expect that by mid day the numbers could have been close to a 1,000. May be the hottest day of the year??
