Surely John! Too much tourist everywhere in nowadays! But I am wondering if it is not dangerous too have a bath in the ocean? Are there sharks?

Hello Mimi, There are a lot of tourists now but further along the beach still looks like this, you could find recent photos of this beach on google earth.

It is safe to swim in the sea, I have many times and never heard of sharks there.

Best wishes, John

Though a lot has changed, the picture has not faded yet ...

John Adamson on July 3, 2009

Hi Bert, as you say a lot has changed but the picture is still OK. As it is now digital I believe that I shall fade first.

Best regards, John

Hay John, as you already have mentioned..

Stroll a couple of miles along the beach and one can take a similar picture as if the years have never past...
