Beach culture

There’s a culture for those who come to the sea to live. A community and way of life as distinct as being American or Japanese. And we know one another by the artifacts of such a life: the clothing, shoes, walk, speech and appearance announce the waterman or waterwoman as distinctly as the bronzed skin, stretched smile or far off look of remembrance of moments apart from land. It’s a good life, a good people, and a worthy, immediate and quite optimistic perspective on a life both wondrous and brief.
