    Please don't let your children; or your grandparents for that matter take their loaf of wonder bread; disseminate into 100,000,000 pieces, over our families beach area ..... wait until the end of the day like midnight when there are no families on the beach to get pooped on .........................

    I wasn't referring to those butts :funn: , butt I knew what you were talking about. I do smoke on the beach, and I use a cup with water as an ashtray, then use my baggie from lunch for disposal prior to leaving the beach. 1) you know they are exterminated and 2) by being wrapped up in a baggie helps with the odor which is polite for the person behind you at the garbage.

    15. Smile, make eye contact and say "Hello" or "Good Morning!" when you pass someone while walking on the beach.

    Most everyone does this, and a it's a point of pride for me about the area. (the friendliness). But every blue moon someone buzzes by with a scowl, and it puts me out of sorts a bit...til the next friendly face walks by... :clap_1:

    Well...there are a few scowlers out there. Here's a story.

    There's a lady who most of us Seacresters have passed at one time or another, who has a ...certain kind of pet...she carries around on the beach. And she's infamous for being a bit of a curmudgeon, with her verbal threats and/or angry stares at all people who are walking their dogs on the beach. She tells everyone with dogs "don't you know you're breaking the law, dogs aren't allowed on this beach!". To which we always pleasantly reply "Yes ma'am, she is legal, we are Walton county homeowners and she is permitted." Angry stare ensues. Admittedly, one time she had a point, because Bailey slipped off leash and rushed her (wagging, as always.) But whenever people are in distant sight, we keep her on leash, and within the legal hours.

    Funny thing is, the pet she carries around is most likely not permitted, (because there's probably no provision for that kind of pet). And I betcha dollars to donuts it poops. But it's OK, she's just part of the scene, like a crabby old aunt you kind of love anyway. And before long, she's gone and someone else passes, who misses their dog back home and is SO glad to meet Bailey. And they smile. The end.

    17. stay out of the way of any large pickup truck, or any car with a ton of stickers. chances are they are a local and are sick of sharing the road with tourists.

    " if it's tourist season, why can't we shoot em?"


    .only suppose to be funny, dont be offended.

    :shock: Wowza! I am surprised we have missed her. Maybe that's a good thing. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled and happy face on just in case. :D Sounds like she needs to be "SoWal"ed!

    18. Do not point and laugh at someone laying out. It really hurt my..uh...it can really
    hurt their feelings.

    19. If you are a werewolf...stay away from where Mrs. TripleB and Darlene are staying.

    i didnt believe you were a tourist smiling joe. I was assuming you were just a transplant, and a welcome one at that.
    dont knock people who live in doublewides, mines only 15 miles south of the alabama line!!

    I have a question for all. I write a column for 30A Review and was wondering if I used this thread as my next subject if anyone would have a problem. I will source SoWAl.com. It will get the rules out there more and I will expand on it. Kurt, ok with you!!!! Thanks,

    Bobby J
