I have been reading here for a while now. I don't know why I am surprised at how you 'locals' feel about the renters, which includes me, but truly I am. I have stayed in Seagrove every March for the last 5 years. I have never felt anything but welcome in your wonderful community. My husband is unable to work and has gone done there for the last 2 summers as a volunteer to help rebulid after all the hurricanes. He is one of the many that gave their time to rebulid boardwalks. He does this becausee we love the area, and the people have always been wonderful. Hopefully the posters that complain about us are not locals, that they are ones fortunate enough to have vacation homes in this paradise. If not, I am rethinking my idea of paradise. I won't go where I am not wanted. I am glad the area dodged a hit but I know the damage will be immense. I do appreciate this board, but I am very disappointed in some of the sentiments here. Stay safe.
