    I wonder if he checks Boopsie for booby traps before they…

    I believe he has had enough sand for the rest of his lifetime.

    It’s true. Going back and forth between environments where (almost) everything is taken for granted and where nothing is taken for granted has to be a little jarring.

    When I was a little kid, back in the UK just after WWII, there were some beaches that still had mine warning signs up. My parents woul never let me check if I could find some. :-(

    Although glass bottles are discouraged due to possible breakage, I have seen a big machine in the early morning raking the sand to clear away any debris from the night before.

    Of course, with some of those “privileged” rich morons in Malibu trying to block access to PUBLIC BEACHES, that might not be a bad idea…

    Just wait, some creep reading this today will think it’s a great idea, get his hands on land mines, and, one night, will sneak onto a beach and plant the mines.

    The beach has sand on it! Hasn’t he has enough of sand? Take him to a forest area with lots of trees.

    50 years ago I was a Combat Engineer in Vietnam. To this day I still watch for anomalies that would indicate there’s a mine. Hypervigilance never goes away.

    Yes, as a matter of fact, the beach has been swept for mines. Just not recently.

    The Strand going from Coronado, California, actually has warning signs telling motorists not to stop to walk around the sand dunes—there are still mines left over from WWII there.
