The beach is a wonderful place - the warm sun, the cool ocean, the salty air and sense of constant relaxation. But it's also an undeniably wonderful place to people watch.

Think about the last trip you took to the beach...think about the people you saw and what hilarious things they were doing. Now, I dare you to say that it wasn't an incredible people-watching experience.

From college girls posing for "traditional" beach pictures to little kids building their first elaborate sand castles, the beach f full of fascinating people. The ranges of people that one might see at the beach on a single day are vast.

Some people choose to lay-out and tan while others prefer to play in the water. Some of the more adventuresome ones might go para-sailing or play water sports.
