It is a tradition in Carmel. When the sun is about to set, everyone rushes to the beach to watch it. That is, everyone with an ounce of soul. Dog owners just have to say the word "beach", and their dog goes nuts. They know they will be able to run free and meet up with friends.
When you do go down to watch the sun set, you don't necessarily need to take someone with you. You meet up at the beach, just like the dogs. And it's not that you need to plan this in advance, you just go. If you do have a dog, chances are you will hang out with the dog crowd, walking the mile length of the beach. As I said, no one plans to go, it just happens. No one calls anyone beforehand. You just show up.
Take me. I had a busy day meeting clients all day and was ready to have a glass of wine somewhere, but something pulled me to the beach. If I had wanted to, I could have struck up conversations, petted dogs, brought a glass of wine (I'm not sure that's really legal, but people do it). But my focus was to take a few photos to show you what I saw.
