Shoes on the beach

Wearing shoes to the beach cracks me up. Usually, when I'm at the beach I'm barefoot and since it doesn't get too cold around these parts, rare is the day that too many clothes are required. When I see people on the beach fully dressed and shod I generally assume they're not from these parts. Or going to a wedding...

But of course, there are always those times when you want to go for a walk and it's too cold to leave your toes bare. It's not often, but it happens. And on those days I feel so weird and uncomfortable. It feels wrong.
But at least my feet are warm.
