Beachside Getaway

Far from any major cities and only connected by an average-speed country road are several old-style villages tucked between the mountains with stunning views of the ocean. Many of these towns changed over time as tourism grew, which led to the construction of hi-rise resort hotels and a subsequent influx of beach-goers and yachtsmen.

This particular town is one of the smaller ones and lacks any marine facilities, but many people will sail over here due to be able to take in the grandeur of the towering rock face that surrounds the town on three sides. This causes the town to have longer than average "nights."

Today we are catching the town in the later part of the morning, and the pitch-black shadow caused by the eastern rock face has almost receded. The two resort hotels in this town are seasonal, and tourist season has just begun. The beach is not particularly full and the hotels are just getting started up for this year's tourists, which explains their empty parking lots. The fancier hotel to the east has already sent the first two of its white and yellow shuttle buses to the city to pick up customers from the airport - a 40 mile drive. One of them can be seen heading west on the country road. The larger hotel on the west end of town already has its first group of patrons - a large group of foreign tourists filling two chartered buses.

The crowd currently gathered on the beach is watching a mid-sized cruise liner slowly make its way through the water. The ship is based in the city 40 miles away and so it's a frequent sight in many of the coastal towns in the area. Another sight to behold is the multi-million dollar yacht that has also entered the scene from the west. It would also appear that there are some people on jet skis racing each other. The beach generally gets 3-4 times as full when tourist season is in full-swing.

Lastly, the bleak building at the base of the mountains is a corporate office where bigwigs meet to discuss future plans for the city's dominant oil company. A small group of black cars can be seen making their way up the hill to the site.

All cars and other vehicles are static models Photoshopped in. Photoshop was used extensively for this image.

Oh ... (searching for words) ... please tell me how to get there. I want to pass my next vacations there.

BTW - This prop pack contains a good amount of sunbathers. Maybe they would make a fine addition to the beach.

      It's the year 1151, a group of monks are working on the Fall harvest. Recently picked grapes are being brought in to be pressed 10 or 20 toes at a time.
