"Beach Comber"

By diamondgeaser
At the end of another busy day on the beach this local young man has a real task to execute. He may spend 12hours each day attending to sun beds, then comb a section of the beach. Probably gets paid buttons for it.I asked him how his skin deals with the sun, he said, "okay,but has to be careful in high season, or he can burn just like us whites". He was pleasant and had a good sence of humour. Hope you like it and thanks for yesterday,s kind comments and votes,

Hard work - didn't even know there was such a job as smoothing the sand. But he looks jolly and you got a great shot of him.
