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 given. I understand that some are not respectful but are you in favor of prohibiting all? is your property under assault? you seem to be hung up on the "Lower class" tourist. I'm sorry that enforcement against abuse is lax but y'all seem heavy handed. off putting.
