Physical Distancing at the Beach


Jupiter Island Beach
Jupiter, FL
September 2, 2020

The holiday weekend is upon us and it seems that lots of people are planning on heading to the beach. Frankly, in addition to doing some work at the condo I am also planning on heading to the beach.

I went to the beach twice yesterday, to two different Palm Beach County beaches. I did that after being greeted by the following headline: 

Coronavirus Florida: These beaches are open, closed for Labor Day holiday weekend

Fortunately, the beaches in my area are not closing for the weekend.

On my two trips to the beach, the first being about 8:30 AM to Jupiter Island, I can report excellent physical distancing.

The beach at that hour was devoid of others and Chris and I had a great walk.

For our second trip to the beach, in the afternoon about 5:30 for Happy Hour, I waded into the ocean to get a shot of our spot on the beach. It, too, was almost deserted.  There is one interloper walking into the images, but other than than that our spot is not near any other beachgoers. 

The beaches have less people on them than the grocery store--which we have managed to visit only once! I like that trend. Beach three times and grocery store once. Maybe we can keep the ratio like that, or even better!

Beaches are great places to get away from the crowd!
