This is Birch Point Park beach (larger view). It used to be known as Lucia Beach. I went there the other day on a little picture taking trip in search of reference material for my watercolor classes, in particular I was looking for beach roses. They're gone for the season though. There may be another round at the end of the summer. I was so surprised at how many people come to this beach now. There were rows of school buses with their hoards of little day campers. Kids were having their arguments with each other over who would get to sit next to the window on the ride home as previously agreed. Agreements were being broken because one had called a young man's long shorts 'capris'. This did not sit well with the young man and therefore the young lady was not about to sit well in the window seat. There were some tears too in this little drama. But I was there for just a few moments and on to lunch elsewhere. My siblings and friends will remember when this was a sparsely populated beach. We used to marvel at the rusted metal sculpture of a drowned sailor that rose up out of a tidal pool on the rocks.
