We were set up in the "vendor zone" by Western Lake at Grayton on Saturday
next to an unoccupied non-vendor easy-up and some chairs. Vendor came by
and asked us if we knew the folks who had the pop-up. Nope. Then he asked
us if we had seen them. Nope. Then he proceeded to begin moving the pop-up
and I asked him what he thought he was doing. He said he was going to move
the the pop-up 50 yards down the beach so he could put up some umbrellas and
chairs for his clients. I told him to stop and that he could not move other people's
stuff and that I would call code enforcement and the sheriff if he did not stop.
That did it. For a while. Then his clients came over to us and asked us the same
questions. Again, I told them that they were not allowed to move other folks
stuff. Then I went out fishing in my kayak and my wife was there by herself.
After I came back, she told me that they started back in on her and other locals
next to us got involved when the saw what was going on. In the end, the vendor
ended up setting up his clients chairs in an empty spot by the lake further inland.
I can't believe how rude this vendor and his clients were. It was unbelievable.
We really need to do something about vending. And I hope the kind of tourists
we met on Saturday don't ever come back.
