The calm before the storm
It is mid-March, the beach is void of deckchairs, sunbathers and fast-food kiosks, despite the fact that it's a very warm day (15 degrees Celsius at 8:30am). Calendar Easter weekend is coming up, but the charter flights don't officially start jamming in the package tourists until mid-April. It's going to be a slow start to the season. I live close by here - the road leads to the supermarkets, which is how I came to be at the beach so early in the morning.
