  • Hidden Beach is a unique city beach. No parking. One has to walk at least couple of blocks to get there...depending on where one parks.

    It's not a family beach. It has a reputation of being a nude beach...though I've never seen it. Perhaps at night?

    Young people. Jamming together, laughing together the week before school starts.

    I've never seen the park police there but I imagine they visit now and then.

    In fact, it seems that perhaps the teens have their own police. A man, perhaps in his thirties, approached me from a different direction. I had seen him watching me.

    "What's with the camera?"

    "Do you work for someone?"

    "Independent artist?"

    "No. It's okay."

    "I thought as much."
