I know you can buy a pass and drive on the protected (north) end of the beach. Has anyone done this? Any pics? I lived there for a year, but at the time didnt have a 4x4. I know theres at least one visible shipwreck up that way. Saw a red fox and her babies on the beach around 8th st. once, kinda cool. Did you know the Germans were right offshore in U-boats during WW2? Check out the museum sometime. Thanks.
