    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Reggie: I'm not wrong; we just disagree. I've not been duped, but you have. Your very vivid anger makes it hard to respond to or converse with you. So I'll leave you with this: “The sea can do craziness, it can do smooth, it can lie down like silk breathing or toss havoc shoreward; it can give...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    This thread is depressing. I said I’d quit following but easier said than done. Questions not directed at me but here goes— Quiet title turned public beach to private: quiet title is used when there is a title dispute - a cloud on title, like use by others — notice rqmts having been met are...

    What is the status of the litigation (case no. if anyone has it) ? I'd like to follow that and not check in on this thread. Thanks.

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Seems that the thrust of that blog article at Editor's Opinion: Maybe Political Satire isn't for you? Or Maybe it's just for you! is that the ugly signs, chains, etc., are expression of political satire. Really? Or is that satire also? I get the feeling that the folks opposed to CU in this...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Reggie: Been visiting Seagrove annually since 1969. It is my 96 year old mom’s happy place. Over the past 12 years or so we’ve come in the Fall. Because she is 96 last year we came in July. Yes, the crowds were a shock; I even asked a group if they could turn down their music. They kindly...

    Fire at The Red Bar in Grayton Beach

    True. So very sad. The Red Bar was one of the last original funky places in the area. Hope they can rebuild on the very spot. Hallowed ground I'd say.

    Quit claim of beach front land

    Let me rephrase: Just wondering if the Land in your title policy includes anything more than your discrete lot.

    Quit claim of beach front land

    As my 95 year old Mama, a patron of these shores since the Cube days, says on the “private beach” issue, “RIDICULOUS! It’s like buying a house on a busy street and then complaining about the traffic!” A quit claim deed, as used in these instances, may provide “color of title” but IMO does not...

    To Anyone Who Loves the Eastern Lake Inlet

    I stayed here recently. To build on this “lot” is just the pits. Here is a photo or two (if uploads correctly) of the scene there. Kids playing on the inlet w turtle nest behind, right at “lot”.

    Comprehensive Trip Report

    We reluctantly left Seagrove Saturday after a glorious week. The weather was perfect. Like swimming in an aquamarine jewel; a few giant pink meanie jellies (WOW - have nev) only on Friday but they're so large, were easy to avoid. No biting flies - just hundreds of beautiful butterflies of all...

    Policy on Personal Beach Chairs vs Vendor

    I would not deny a beach front homeowner the right to use the beach in front, or as some say, out back, of their house. But to the exclusion of all others to use that beach, yes - the right to exclude others who have peaceably used that sand for decades is not among the bundle of rights conveyed...

    Policy on Personal Beach Chairs vs Vendor

    Lucas: If I were to lay a towel and put an umbrella and chair on the beach in front of your house, or any house, to read my book and enjoy the beauty, as I have since 1975, would you want me to move?

    Policy on Personal Beach Chairs vs Vendor

    This video: OH MY WORD! According to that Facebook page the man brandishing a stick (?) is a Bill Hackmeyer, real estate guy from Memphis, now retired in Dune Allen. He may need to watch his coronary health; lot of anger coursing through those veins. At the end of the day, I cannot understand...

    Yes, agree. That's how it used to be in the early days...like around 2004 is the first time I ever heard of chair vending outside of resort.

    Holy Cow! Garth is vending on the beach? Is Wayne behind him selling suntan oil? Good grief.

    Headland Ave Beach Access Workshop 7/12/16

    As someone smarter said prior, Walton County should prohibit all commercial vending on the sand now, as other beach communities elsewhere have done, to preserve what makes these beaches special!

    Headland Ave Beach Access Workshop 7/12/16

    Agreed. She should absolutely recuse herself, but then it looks like you may be left with a tie vote? Is there an ordinance regarding conflicts of interest for BCC commissioners? Also, it's a shame that this proposal provides that half of the county owned sand at each access will be designated...

    Opinions please for best week to visit South Walton

    what y'all think? for best week in sep or oct for less chance of flies, less visitors (w benefit of less beach vendors) and still warm water? Don't mind a bit of a gasp upon plunging. Thank you!

    Policy on Personal Beach Chairs vs Vendor

    I hear your argument in that view john g. the thing is that multi unit resorts have NO more right to exclude random sand sitters than any OTHER beach front owner. ANY beach front owner as ANY beach GOER should expect and be able to rely upon the assurance that individual bad behavior will be...

    Policy on Personal Beach Chairs vs Vendor

    stands would appear to be a logical solution. I don't really understand why chairs are set up without committed sitters. is it the law of a near captive audience? chairs there, "oh nice, who do I pay?" from what i understand they are not all rented. so expensive for many and then no space for...

    Amending Ordinance to Ban Signs, Ropes, Fences on the Beach

    Sad. Maybe we venture elsewhere for vacation. I hope the revised ordinance goes through and that beach front owners can really rely on the county to enforce its laws against behavior already prohibited.

    Stand Your Sand Day June 4

    I anticipate that someone might say wouldn't you rather have a sign advertising beach services rather than row of empty chairs all day? I'd rather neither. the onion has many layers. next up: pedicures on beach signs?

    Stand Your Sand Day June 4

    no just no. advertising on beach. no no no. insult to injury. I'm so thankful for y'all who took a stand today. to see that on top of all the conundrum, wth? bud to nip, sharply.

    john g and vagrant: would you have a problem if I set up my umbrella and chair for my family on the dry sand directly southward of your house or condo? like someone said on another thread, in the past folks owning property on the beach kinda knew others' enjoyment of the beach "out front" was a...

    Public vs Private Beach [threads merged]

    My circumstances are this: we visit in the fall, which used to be less visited, but not so now. in old seagrove have not had anyone run us off from where we set up our umbrella, but seeing the private beach indicators near there, most unwelcoming. taints the vibe. too bad.

    Thank you for your service. Thank you for your comment. My thoughts exactly. Are the laws re nesting turtle that prohibit impediments being enforced? What's the deal there?

    So if we rent in old seagrove in the magical forest with multiple beach accesses off 30a where do y'all think we can we place our umbrella and chairs with peace of mind that we will not be asked to move? Thank you. Planning our vacay.

    "Anyway, the beach is starting to look like a war zone of no trespassing signs. It's not as much fun to walk the beach" Agree. Signs, posts, roped off areas not welcoming at all; changes the whole dynamic for the worst IMHO. Sad. Wristbands?!!!! are you kidding!?

    I am grateful for the clarification by JHF and agree. Just hope that the few bad kids don't ruin it for the rest of the class. Would miss Seagrove so (would otherwise need to win the lottery to afford a beachfront rental!). :)

    I can certainly see if SoWal is dealing with the kind of stuff on this video (from the Whale's Tail) how property owners would be incensed having to clean up after these thoughtless people. Is this happening in SoWal? Or the fear that it will? I can only speak for my family and hope most are...

    From reading this thread and others on this board, is it correct that a majority of beachfront property owners desire to prohibit people from sitting on any dry part of the beach in front of their houses? And, if so, is this desire the result of masses of people having done so for so long that...
