So the 65’ of public beach in Watersound dedicated to the public goes 65’ from east to west? I was under the impression that it was 65’ depth north to south but running the entire width of Watersound Beach and Watersound West Beach. 65’ of beach frontage among over a mile of beach frontage doesn’t seem like much for the public.

It's north to south.

Mr. Uhlfelder has posted pics of new ropes up on the east and west boundaries of Seaside on the Walton County Visioning FB page this morning, but now the post is gone.

Strange. I saw that this morning and you're right. It's gone now. Wonder why the admins removed it.

He may have removed it himself. Perhaps he was advised that it wasn't a good idea. If so, though, he didn't get the same advice about posting a picture of himself standing in front of Gov. Huckabee's house. At least he could see for himself that there are no signs and he wasn't kicked off so that's good news.

Yep, I noticed the second appearance down the beach!

Real estate professionals are the ones that started all the "Private Beach" advertising back in the late 80s so they could get big $$$. Pretty sure we can blame most of the CU problems on their shoulders. And they wont stop until someones sues them for false advertising.

BPO family Walton county beach for generations - her property goes back to 1878: "The thought of people being on my walkover drunk or otherwise is over the top. I have grandchildren and would not want them exposed to unruly behavior. Also..being on the beach at night in front of my house. No way. This situation has the potential to become a nightmare. Sounds nice enough about ambassadors but why should I or my family be exposed to a situation where I would be waiting for an ambassador to come. I dont know others opinions but I am stunned with the thought that I would have to deal with all of this.. Is he expecting thousands more descending on the beach?"
