A la plage

I know that Vancouver has a ton of beautiful beaches, and a gorgeous coastline... I am slightly embarrassed to say that I don't make it down there very often. I guess I'm not really a beach person (unless it is at my family's cabin on the lake). This summer I made 2 trips to Vancouver beaches, but neither was a beach destined outing, the beach was simply a place to stop to take a break during a bike ride - the first around Stanley Park on tandem, the second a ride out to Kitsilano in search of pie.
Luckily I was equiped with my cameras to capture the beach dwellers.

The water was so low this day, it seemed you could walk out forever!

Does anyone else find it odd that while on a beach it is perfectly accepted, and in fact normal to stand half naked and talk to someone? Can you imagine being in another location, standing and talking to someone in a bikini? Social norms are such a funny thing.
