I always wear shoes and socks on the beach. Because I hate to touch the sand.


You remember how that Surf Punks song goes? You had on pink neon pants when you sang it and white ray bans. Oh yes you did. Shout along with Otterpop, now. My beach my chicks my waves go home go home. You know all the words.


It's summer now, and the beaches have actual people that want to come down and use them. Imagine that. Too crowded for me when it's more than one person including me. Everyone butts heads. We only like the beach when we can't see actual people on it, or they are very few and far between.


Our other beach, besides rangers, has the yearling seal lions washing up to die. They're starving, is all anyone can figure out. Sad, starving baby seals sharing the beach. Someone said it's the global warming. Someone else said El Nino coming. Ruby and Otterpop, good about leaving them alone. We always turn around when we see the babies, and lately we switched beaches completely to one that doesn't seem to be a baby death beach. Has the most winter big seal carcasses, but has been strangely free of any babies, just a few miles further south.


Breaks my heart to see the pups. Who are starving and shriveling and too tired to swim and just want to come up, lay on the sand, then maybe die. Not ready for the, all, "Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi!" of the manic cheerful of Gustavo and the seal watchers. Just want to be there and see no one. No dogs. No strolling ladies. No kids with buckets. No field trips. No sand castles. No volleyball. No joggers. No One.


Just need a little peace, whether not it's for living or dying.

If you carry your cell phone with you on beach excursions, especially in stranded baby seal land, you can call the Marine Mammal Center. They will scoop the pups up and take them to the center in Sausalito. 831-633-6298. I've call several times and get pretty good response time...but you probably already know this.

For those who frequent the beach, it's probably no surprise that you are looking for a shoe that is comfortable, offers protection, and allows you to stay mobile. If that is the case, there is no better shoe for you than a boat shoe.

Parents who take their children to the beach regularly, or who are planning on taking their children to the beach on a vacation, should give some thought to beach shoes for their children.

Earlier Beach Shoes were made up of rubber and meant to wear especially for beach. But with the passing time, this footwear has emerged as one of the must-have and trend-setting shoes for beach activities in the summer and spring. These are the much preferred footwear during these spring and summer months to enhance maximum comfort and style in them.
