8 Beaches to go

Today I was reading the top 10 beaches listed and I have been to 2 of them... the St. Thomas of the US Virgin Islands and Malibu in California. Hmmm, only 8 more to go! Although for this cash strapped vacation, we'll be going to this beach for a day...

Carmel Beach! Small enough to not be to crazy crowded and they have public restrooms! We're hoping the dolphins will show up again like last year.
I love the Carmel / Monterey area! If I had to pick though, it would be Carmel. Also known as Carmel-by-the-Sea! In 1906, the San Francisco Call devoted a full page to the "artists, poets and writers of Carmel-by-the-Sea" and in 1910 it reported that 60 percent of Carmel's houses were built by citizens who were "devoting their lives to work connected to the aesthetic arts." Early City Councils were dominated by artists and the town has had several mayors who were poets or actors including Herbert Heron, founder of the Forest Theater, and actor-director Clint Eastwood, who was mayor for one term, from 1986 to 1988. Wow, how time flies, seems like yesterday he was mayor doesn't it!

Nice beaches over my way too! Sand Key and Honeymoon Island are my favorites. Public facilities are the #1 requirement in my book too!
Love your musicl selection - perfect for the beach!
Enjoy your vacation!
