Talk about population density!

Sami said...

Goodness, hardly a spot to sit and enjoy the view! Far too many people for my taste...

I remember from living in Rome that the heat is more bearable at a crowded beach than within the hot city walls.

Wow, this would make for a cool time-lapse.

Oh, far too many people for me!!! I do love the winter shot! Such a beautiful place -- except for the crowds! Great captures that do show the difference! Have a great weekend, Jose!!

Judy said...

That is just crazy! I much prefer the earlier shot.

VP said...

You said it: a nightmare!

ladyfi said...

That's a lot of people! I prefer the empty beach.

Lol, I hope I don't dream of that tonight but of the previous shot.

We are back in winter. 16° and rain.

Mersad said...

Both shots are great. I like my beach to be less crowded.

What must it be like by the afternoon? That sure doesn't look like fun!

Rhodesia said...

Wow and I have been walking around here in jeans and a jersey all day!! Diane

Babzy said...

glad you can enjoy the place when it's empty :)

William Kendall said...

What a difference! Too many people, now.

Jack said...

Wow! That is the most crowded beach I have seen.

Randy said...

That is way too many people for me.

Oh No! I thought the California beaches got crowded in the summer, but this is crazy! At least local the businesses will have a good economy for a few months, but it does come at a price. Just remember, you are fortunate enough to live year round where everyone else desires to be!

Can't be really pleasant to be there!

Absolutely identify with your reactions. But people must have holidays and I have to be glad of that too.

Birdman said...

Yikes! Hard to find a quiet corner in this 'world'.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Too funny. I was the at beach this weekend and it was empty as always. I was wondering what it will be like if we are here at summer time. One thing I can be sure of, it won't be as busy as your beach!

Looks so different views.
Too many people in the first photo :)
But both photos are great.
