The beaches here in San Diego seem to be lonelier than usual of late. I like this. A lot of the time I end up going to the bay nearby just to avoid the crowds at the beach. The bay is much more quieter and I have plenty of space around me. If the beach continues to be this empty, I might end up visiting the pacific this summer more than I planned to. I do live nine blocks from it, but you'd be suprised at how rarely I end up there on the weekend because of the crowds.
