The Best Beaches

The best beaches have two sides. One is the open water side -
exposed to wind, wave, and endless horizons. The other side is
accessed through marsh and tidal gut, quiet and secretly.

To come in from the marsh, protected from the wind and waves. To
gaze at the whitecaps rolling in. To paddle around the point to
splash and play in them!
