In an ideal world there are places for everything.

However, on the mid day news they just happened to run a story today about the polution in the sand. When California water is deemed safe to swim in, studies are showing that the sand on the beach remains filthy - the sand acts as a reservoir and just accumulates contamination. That is just from normal ocean contamination. They were recommending that it might be a really good idea to restrain children from playing in the sand on any California beach - especially those that often face closure due to water quality.

I have my serious doubts about the sand and sanitation there if the seal problem is as bad as they make it out to be. Should kids really be playing there after they force the seals out?
