Over-population? Over-crowding?

We live in Orange County ... with approximately 3 million other residents. We are bordered on the North with Los Angeles County and its 10 million residents; on the South with San Diego County's 3 million and on the East with San Bernardino's and Riverside's 2 million each. So, where are all these people? Certainly NOT on this beach with us.

All these following photos are taken from the mouth and towards the north of the trail we just came down.

In the far north distance, you can see the nuclear power plant.

Tomorrow, I'll show you our meanderings to the South - to the area understood to be a n#dist beach. Yes, we traipsed our sweet, innocent kiddos right down to the n#dist beach ... that was completely unoccupied by anyone but us. And we all had our clothes on. ;-)

That is a beautiful beach, what a great place to live. It is incredible how different every beach is. The colour of the sand, the quality, the animals and shells. Wonderful.

OHHHHHH! A nucleur power plant. When our family went on the missions trip to Mexico last summer, our group caravan passed this. One wise guy got on the walkie-talkies and pointed out the "Dolly Parton Museum" heh

Oh, no fun! A nudist beach with no nudity?! lol Oh, well.

I love all the rocks. I could take pictures of rocks all day. Weird, but I bet you understand. :o)

I just saw the nuclear power plant. It looks kind of cool! I'm not sure I'd like one close by though...I wonder if there are any near me?
