    So many ugly signs on our beaches these days and they are multiplying along with vendors with chair setups. Post em if you got em. Just saw this photo on Facebook posted by a local unhappy with this homeowner who lives somewhere else yet asks for local discount at the bar while claiming private beach.

    Been vacationing along 30A (mostly Seagrove, Seaside & Grayton) since the early '80's. So many wonderful memories of our children playing in Western Lake outfall. NO MORE! Stopped vacationing there about 4 years ago. The area has been ruined. So sad!

    Could you be more specific? Where do you vacation now? How can you get your message out to all 30A vacationers?
    Thank you for doing your part!

    In my opinion these signs are as ugly as the trash that gets left behind. When I see one of these signs, I want to drape my towel over it & set up my chair on the private side of the beach sign.

    Funny last week the sheriff deputy was driving the beach and he stopped pulled up a private beach sign and threw it up on their high property. Saying " these aren't allowed ". Sadly it's back and she is planting sea oats from her bank down on the dry sand today

    Looks like it will be an interesting summer season. These signs have been recently planted in Seagrove, east of the Santa Clara Regional access and next to Pelayo access. Have to give them credit for at least trying to be educational :) Maybe the county can provide visitors & residents information on their rights in the event the WCSO is called??

    Everyone should set up their chairs and umbrellas on the wet sand of these private beaches. Saw more signs on the beach in Seacrest during our past visit.

    :Hint: All you have to do is ask them to show you their 2016 Survey of their southern property line..if they have 2016 and your inside the line then move outside the line..If no survey tell them prove their southern line and you will abide..tell the same to WCSO if ( doubtful )!they should show.

    WARNING: SNAKES IN DUNES
    This is one of at least a dozen I counted. Some were actually posted within arm's reach of another. Altogether, I think The Retreat has at least 20 signs in a span of beach no more than about 800' wide. I did notice that their sandwich boards had been dragged off the beach proper, back up to the vegetation line by someone (hopefully the WCSO beach patrol).

    I hope the snakes have been properly informed by the Retreat that they are trespassing on private property.

    All signs need to go. Except a few necessary ones. And so happy to see this new sign at the entrance to Grayton Beach. Local flavor by artist Andy Saczynski.

    Is that legal? The only trucks are law enforcement and beach garbage collection.
