Wreck Beach on Google Earth zoom

Here’s our favorite real-time mapping program zooming in on our West Coast metropolis’ nudist paradise, Wreck Beach. Sadly, it doesn’t quite zoom in far enough for those with more voyeuristic intentions. When the satellite image gets that good, they can probably change the name from Google to Ogle.

In all the years I’ve lived here, I’ve never ventured to our beach for people who like to literally throw off society’s conventions. Perhaps it’s all the second-hand reports I’ve gotten of sun-burned middle-aged men with paunches and binoculars taking up so much of the prime real estate on the sand. One of these days, I’ll have to check it out for myself, though. Time to start getting into shape again…

    Don’t mean to be a stickler, but as much as it appears like it is — technically Google Earth is not real-time mapping. It does stream the data real-time which can be said about any internet application.
