A narrow strip of sandy beach as it could be found on the shore of many a sea or large lake. The sand of the beach extends far into the shallow water on the one side and is separated from the road following the shoreline by a narrow strip of grass and palm trees on the other. Large beach towels and umbrellas are not the only things dotting the beach. At times you might also find a more or less elaborate sand castle and the tools used to build them. And of course you will come across high seats manned by a lifeguards, keeping watch over the beach and the revellers enjoying their leisure time here, in regular intervals.
