Why do people live in countries where you have to put shoes on to walk from the beach to a toilet 20 feet away!!!!
I've experienced that here thanks Chesters, It was probably about 1959, my parents left my sister and I on the beach at Westward Ho and pushed off elsewhere for a few hours. The back of the beach was huge pebbles the size of dinner plates, by midday the tide was in and the pebbles were the only place you could be and you couldn't stand on them for very long. I don't remember how we got through it as it was too long ago and I was only 9, but I've never forgotten it, all I remember is hopping from one foot to another, (no shoes).
