Walking Barefoot on the Beach

Walking on the beach is a wonderful way, not only to work your feet in a way that is not possible in the confinement of shoes, but also to witness the tendencies of your gait.

After years of paying attention, my feet are fairly straight, and my weight is reasonably distributed. I tend to turn out a bit, especially with my left foot and when walking is more challenging (here, in soft sand on an incline).

Do your feet turn in or out in a way that increases stress on all the joints above your feet?
