I was sunbathing on the deck at China Beach. I mostly remember the screaming/screeching of a few. The life guard, Ron Cutler, stepped out of watch tower, observed the sunbathers and yelled “Shut UP” with great authority, the deck quieted. Cutler turned, reentered his watch tower, closing the door which was punctuated with an uproar of uncontrollable laughter.
