    Thanks BM.

    Here is what I know. The beaches in Orange County were open and people came. Unlike San Diego beaches, they were open for sitting and non-exercise use. Many reports say that social distancing from non-family groups was being observed.

    EVERY photo that I have seen is a telephoto shot, which foreshortens the view to make it look like everyone is clumped together, and does not provide visual perspective as to actual spacing.

    San Diego beaches have opened, but only for active exercise/activity. No sitting, gathering, games, etc. Only active use of the beach or water. I have not seen a single instance of the overcrowding cited as the reason for reclosing the beaches - every beach!

    So, even if Orange County abused the order, they are a single instance and don't reflect other beach openings/use all along the coast that fully follow spacing rules.

    Gov. Newsome again exerts his ineptness at leading and making sound judgements. People should note this and remember it.
