Is there any difference between Birds Beach, Seals Beach and Human Beach?
Yes, there are contrast and differences with some commonalities.
Birds Beach has lots of flying, diving, tweeting, singing, pooping. Life is communal, crowded, but everyone gets along. Sharing is normal. Watching each other feathers are normal. Trust is natural. No Social Distancing, No Masks, Birds don’t have to.
Seals Beach has lots of sleeping and relaxing. Life is laid back and no worries. Sun Bathing is a major lifestyle.
Ever now and then, a few wakes up, looks at each other and talk Seal language. Some just stare with droopy eyes looking startled or confused. Few would swim into the ocean to cool off or find food to eat. Also crowded. No Distancing, No Mask. They don’t have to.
Seals do fight and bite sometimes, but Seals quickly kiss and make up. They don’t hold grudges.
Seals mind their own business. No gossips. No exchange of destructive opinions. Instead, they’d rather doze off and dream. No wonder they don’t have facial wrinkles despite of all day Sun and no Sunblock.
Human Beach always moving, changing. People come and go. Some stay for awhile to enjoy the Sun, Sand and Surf. Others pass by for pictures then move on.
Humans tend to stay within their circles. Trust is not normal, it’s earned. They hardly talk or socialize with other humans they don’t know. May be an eye contact, a smile or a friendly greeting, “Morning,” when in close proximity to one another.
Some Humans are curious, restless, adventurous, brave and daring. They would swim waist deep on waves 4 feet high or higher. They would go past safety markings and climb sharp rocks that looks dangerous. Others enjoy Nature from a distance, content on where they are. These are the Humans that can keep still. They are either the calm ones or the cautious ones.
No Distancing among circles. Distancing among strangers. Everyone, No Masks. It’s the Outdoors!
Humans like Social Media. They like to scrutinize other people’s lives. Gossip is a past time. Taking Selfies are both talent and skill. Humans are opinionated. Their words can be used as a weapon because they’re powerful. Their words can also bring people together and heal.
Human Beach has trash. Some visitors leave them. Perhaps the waves will just wash them away or gets buried in the sand. May be a genuine Nature Lover will pick the trash and dispose them properly.
Luckily, Human pooping all natural is never allowed nor accepted in these beaches. That would be mega gross. No Porta Potty except at the hiking trail entrance.
The 3 Beaches have one beautiful treasure in common, the Ocean. It’s blue, it’s vast, it’s relaxing and it’s wonderful. The Beaches shares the Ocean equally.
The Ocean is always free. Humans decided it needs entrance fee in some Nature Parks and Beaches for maintenance and upkeep. Fair enough. Provides jobs too.
Same Hiking Trails at Wilder Ranch State Park, just different views, observation and experience 1-2 blocks away. Amazing.
We didn’t finish the trail. Too long, no water. We skipped the visitor center information. It wasn’t a planned hiking. I just stopped where I first saw many cars parked from the roadside.
My General Rule: More Cars means More Adventure and Scenic Views.
Definitely, we will come back more prepared. I heard, there’s a Shark Beach. That would be “Jaws Dropping.”
