    I've seen sheriff patrols stop pull private beach signs up and throw them on athe dune. I've also seen them just drive by whistling "happy days are here again"

    Crazy! I don't understand what the problem is regarding some truck tracks in the sand.

    I love the tracks going right past it on the right (landward side) of the sign!

    I agree that that company should be banned from EVER doing a setup like that so near a nest that is clearly marked.

    Was just reading SWTWs post on Facebook. They are asking for the name of the business/person that did this "event". Hopefully we can find that info out for them and they can get something done about the out of hand vendors on our beaches.

    Maybe if we all tag the sheriff and FWC on other social media we can get some enforcement going on. Pretty sure there would be fines involved from the state...

    I wonder if this is something that can be reported. I have always been under the impression that the beach is public property as soon as you get down to the actual sand. Someone correct me and tell me if this in not the case, please.

    Good call! I live in Seagrove and pay taxes and will be damned if a little wooden sign is going to keep me from enjoying the beach in the county where I pay taxes and live.

    These are some of the saddest pictures I've ever seen.

    Someone needs to get this to the news channels, let them embarrass the local law officials about their lack of involvement on many issues.
