    Watch the locals

    I had fun watching the locals rollerblade. Some people were jogging or just walking.
    You see skateboarders and people on bicycles as well. Not too many locals care about the beach or the water. Some of them just come down to the beach to meet up with others, friends, etc. I've seen an old guy coming down to the beach in his old, beat up pickup truck and he just laid down on a bench with nothing but a pair of pants on.
    He was laying there for hours. No sun-screen, no shade, nothing. I was kind of worried about him burning. Mind ya, he wasn't nearly as white as I was. :)

    To relax, play or for exercise, Dana has a few dozen of lovely, exiquisitely landscaped parks, including the Lantern Bay Park, located at the intersection of Golden Lantern and Dana Point harbor.
    This park is open from 6 in the morning, 'til about 10 PM.
