Why all the interest? For one thing, a full-time year-round lifeguard can earn $150,000.

Great pictures, must be nice to live somewhere where you won't die from hypothermia if you are in the water for more than 5 minutes.

Walter,
Great photos but I've got one question. Your figure indicates $150,000 is that correct? If so, I'm telling my grandkids to move to SoCal. They love swimming.

Selvin, yes, you read it correctly. FT, year-round lifeguards can eventually earn that much.

Oh wait that isn't the Oregon Coast.

Great pictures.
