    WARNING: SNAKES IN DUNES
    Blue Mountain Beach, Florida

    The dune snake situation has risen to the level that a WARNING has been issued by The Retreat, with more than a dozen warning signs being posted in the immediate area of the Draper Lake outflow.

    yeah...my family has had a home in SRB since 1966, and that's a first for me. We grew up playing in those dunes, and I never saw a snake. Sounds like a simple scare tactic to me...

    I propose we start moving all the private beach signs on to the Scenic 30A shoulders.

    WHAT? Lol. Private property with snakes? That's a good one.

    Years ago there were angry dune snakes in Deer Park all the time. They were attached to naked homosexuals. Could it be the same type?

    When trespassing at The Retreat, make sure to tuck your pant legs into your socks.

    Was out that way today, and it was mentioned how one of the turning points of So Wal going downhill was them putting in Watersound where the nude gay beach used to be.

    I blame Meryl. Phony b*tch. Definitely not SoWal material. She opened the door for all the phony suburbanites who followed. I should have drowned her when I had the chance.

    Don't even get me started on Christof.

    What snakes? I have lived in BMB permenantly since 2003 within 50 yds of the dunes and have yet to see a snake on them. Maybe that they just prefer the "elite" of the Retreat? ALL SIGNS ON THE BEACH need to be removed!

    Actually, it was Rosemary Beach that initially displaced the nekkid folks and caused them to migrate west. Then Watersound Beach happened. The only place they have to go now is Deer Lake, and the citations the rangers write are pretty graphic.

    Snakes in the sand, it's called a terrarium.

    I would simmer down a little on the beach sign thing here. Looks like they want to keep tourists (and especially their kids) off the dunes. The dunes are what stand between us and a hurricane surge. It drives me up the wall when a family from Atlanta lets their kids trounce all over them and the fragile plants that hold them together.

    Agree. We should all be behind protecting dunes. But are we going to start erecting private property signs on them? Shouldn't Dune protection signs be official and educational? Without snake warnings?

    Last week around sunset time I saw an entire stack of vendor chairs stored on TOP of the actual dune at Grayton Beach. This is unacceptable.
