I was born here..Redfishy Drama Queen
Beach is open and people already getting at it, jumping the 2x4 barrier that was still up on walkover to get to the beach. This lady is putting up caution tape so that the virus knows not to enter her space when someone 100 yards away coughs or sneezes
I'm gonna go enjoy it. I'm sure the hoards will be rolling in today and tomorrow. Between home owners and their "guests" it's gonna get surprisingly busy.
Look out for the grim reaper! I think he wears one of those old fashioned mens' onesey bathing costumes.
I drove by a lot of accesses today and most parking lots were full by 8am.
I am predicting they will be closed again within a week. The people violating the rental ban have gotten out of control and the sheriff/county will shut it all down again.
Grayton has been a complete zoo since Friday afternoon. It's like everybody has forgotten that we're still in the middle of a pandemic.
I have heard Grayton has been having a street party for weeks.
Yep. On Hotz by Chiringo. We haven't been. Still having our family happy hour on the porch at home.
I just talked to some friends that went down there, got in the water for a minute and when it started getting crazy they were like "maybe this isnt such a good idea" and left again.
Very quiet where we are. People spaced WAY apart. No big crowds, just enjoying the beach.
The County passed resolution 2020-42 which extends the Local State of Emergency. As part of this approval, the BCC has reopened beach vending with the following requirements:
Vendors shall place equipment at a minimum of 6 feet apart
Vendors shall not place equipment in a manner to allow groups of more than 10 to congregate
Vendors shall disinfect equipment between each use
So if short term rentals are not allowed yet who is renting all these chairs? To me it looks like the ghost chairs are back. The vendors are getting away with setting these ghost chairs up again..before the virus the rule was passed that they only set up when people order them or on-demand
It's probably going to be bad. A lot of pent up testosterone-fueled energy and empty pockets looking for butts to put in seats.
Yup… You are so right! All the nasty bullies who run these chair vendor businesses will be out there yelling at people to get off “their area of the beach”. They threaten you with calling CODE ENFORCEMENT… The best thing you can do as I was told by the head of CODE ENFORCEMENT is to tell him to go ahead and do it because they have no exclusive right to ANY part of the beach. Then if the nastiness continues I as a citizen can call the police saying I am being harassed. A sad way to have to deal with one little person like myself coming down to the beach to spend a couple hours in her beach chair
I see that the "Grim Reaper" is still roaming Panhandle beaches.
Whats everyone expecting Memorial Day weekend to be like? I know a lot of Atlanta loves to party it up at the Sandestin Hilton. Better stock up on essentials before they show up
I heard that Publix in Freeport is giving out a free roll of TP and a steak with every six pack purchase now through end of July.
