'Sugary eye candy' at Madison Park beach?

This is amusing. In a story posted this afternoon, the national website (“Insider Source for Everything Local”) anointed our beach as the “safest bet for the best (and least) in beach fashion,” at least compared to other Seattle beaches.
To illustrate their point, they used a photo of a scantily-clad Ursula Andress from the 1962 James Bond movie, Dr. No. She’s seen standing on a beautiful, sun-soaked beach—which in reality is the beach at Laughing Waters Estate on St. Ann’s Bay in Jamaica.

But never mind, our beach is just as exciting. Referring to the “mad beach” as a “small gem,” our author goes on to wax lyrical: “All beautiful walks of life are represented in this sunny little utopia. There is far more sugary eye candy that most any other beach in the area, and it can be quite sexy. The less clothes the better is the fashion de jour [sic]. Patterns such as polka dots and itsy bitsy bikinis adorn most of the princesses who rule this kingdom, and a heavy dose of American Apparel and H&M is apparently what the doctor went and ordered.”

Well, it goes on from there. I suspect that if the author actually made it to Seattle, he was not at the beach on that gray day last week when the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were frolicking there and playing in the park. I understand that when the Sisters slid down the slide a little more was exposed than most observers expected or wanted to see. But that’s just hearsay.

Those wishing to read the full story on how great our beach is can do so here.
