Go for it Ray, I'm about tired of being told I can't do something and have
others with more money and power destroy what I just wanted to enjoy. At
Wrightsville Beach the North end used to be just dunes. People would hike the
dunes, lay out in the sun among the dunes in the winter to get away from the
wind (in the nude sometimes) well, the environmentalists decided it was
hurting the dunes for people to walk on them so it was declared off limits.
Then someone with enough money decided beach houses and condos would look
better than dunes and yes they bulldozed the dunes and now it's a solid
avenue of expensive homes and condos and you still can't walk there because
now it's somebody's yard. And the inlet that was wild and able to move on the
whim of nature is being hemmed in by sand bags and sea walls because it
threatens a huge hotel/condo type complex even though the law clearly states
it's illegal to do so. So money talks and BS walks, but not on the dunes.
