Popular Secret?
updated: Mar 15, 2014, 2:15 PM

By John Wiley

I was recently told this beach is a closely guarded secret. In case that's true, I'm not saying where it is. But looking at the large and well worn paths, it seems likely that many people know about and visit this "secret" place. It even has a picnic table, chair, and trash can. So is it really secret, or do most locals know where it is and visit occasionally? Do mostly surfers go here for a good break, or is it more frequented by people who live and work nearby? Is it better to keep favorite places secret? Better to make them widely known, loved, and protected by all? Do you sometimes demur when people ask about living in SB, just saying you like it here but keeping all the reasons to yourself?
