I arrived at Grayton Beach before 11:00 a.m. On a non holiday weekend and I noticed that we were unable to pull up to a direct beach parking because a long line of unoccupied rental beach chairs. As a resident I pay for beach access every year and have been doing so for over 11 yeas. I am very upset by this behavior by the Beach chair vendors. I do not begrudge their entrepreneurial spirit, however, when they infringe on my rights as a tax payer, then we have a problem. If these vendors were to set up chairs as customers arrived, then it is fair game. However, they set up on the full fringe of the beach, very,very early, and hog the entire beach. These chairs are empty for most of the day ... I counted 16 empty chairs at 1:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon. I plan to contact the County Commission about this nonsense. The same thing happened at the Jazz Fest in April. People were so upset that there were arguments and people almost came to blows. They started moving the chairs....very scary situation. We do not want this on our beautiful beach.
