Visit a beach


Aquaint yourself with the beach

Beach from above

Get a general view of both the drained and undrained areas of the beach. If possible you should try and view the beach area from a high vantage point. Try and see patterns. Is the beach divided into distinct areas that are easily defined? Are there any deviations from a distinct pattern so that larger areas are broken up into smaller that merge into each other?
   Carefully walk around the beach and study those areas that you observed from your vantage point. Even walk in the water if it is possible. Try to find something that is beautiful and interesting. It should be something that want to take with you and keep. We know that you will choose something carefully to minimize damage to the environment.
