Beach

West of the site, towards the sea, lies a long, low stretch of beach. The sands are soft and white, with the occasional large rock strewn about. The beach isn’t especially wide, and back up onto a Cliffside through most of its length. Part of the beach includes a large cove, with particularly shallow water. On the whole the waters near the shore are pretty shallow. They’re clear, and blue, and overall pleasant. Most days it is sunny, but the place has a somewhat dreary look to it when it does rain. There are several paths which lead to the beach from the site, the quickest of which is through an underground, stone-carved tunnel exiting at the base of the cliffs, coming from the central part of the site and through several layers of security doors.

There are all sorts of shells and such on the beach, and it can be a good place to swim and relax. Some unknown member of staff has placed a large volleyball net on the beach, and stowed a few balls with a pump in a large plastic container.

Towards the south end of the beach, there is a large dock, at which a number of Foundation ships are moored. There is usually someone stationed there, to ferry people wherever on the water they might need to go. The most commonly used light ferry boat is the SCPS Juniper Shell.

Far off the coast of the site, but still within visual range, is the wreckage of a large destroyer, sitting on a sand bar a dozen meters below the surface. It’s a large ship from the war, and was destroyed by cannon fire after running aground in the area’s surprisingly shallow waters. It has been used for several years as a platform off which divers can be trained in a relatively diverse, but still safe, environment.
