Any time on the beach is a good time. However, with that said...the most delightful time, for me, is the last two or three hours of daylight. The sun slips down into the western horizon casting enough of a glow on the water to leave a green, blue, orangey sheen. The crowds have left, the lifeguards are off duty and only the true beach people are left. True beach people are not just sun worshipers, although it's a nice perk of a beach day, it's not the only perk. After most have headed back to their beach condos the waves continue to provide the background music to a bit more fun, laughter and girl talk. It all makes Monday seem so very far away.
