uh yeah...that whole hollywood ideal of making love in the surf?....ummm sand is abrasive and it is everywhere in the surf!<quoted text>Tortoises-turtles are being used as some gauge__or form of measurement as to how much damage humans are causing through development.
Here in Florida we've spent million$ relocating gopher turtles (tortoises) and God only knows how much protecting nesting turtles along our beaches.
When I arrived in Florida, camping on the beach was legal as was drinking, building fires, scarooing, and skipping baby loggerheads across the sand was a form of amusement for many.
Well__times change__I miss drinking on the beach mostly__these days anyway__sand was never a good base for scarooing anyway, too sandy__and turtles truly are precious.
Farmers should own or lease the land they work__seems fair eh?
and then the water has soalt in it!!! could there possibly be a worse place for scaroooing on this planet? i think not outside of an active volcano...
you ocean fols need to visit the beautiful beaches of our ten thousand Minnesota lakes! absolutely perfect place for scarooing...
