SUNDOWN FROM THE CLIFFS
In yesterday's featured photo we mentioned the cliffs. Well, today, you can see the railing that keeps travelers at bay so they don't fall off and brake something.
The cliffs are located on the beach path between 7th & 22nd Streets (approx). In some spots below the beach narrows but the beach mostly continues its expansive sand shelf that offers thousands of sunbathing spots for everyone who visits.
