I'd love to read the story but the webpage it takes readers to (Web Link seem to take you anywhere near any story: Web Link. Am I missing something? Thank yo for taking us straight to that promising story!
The link worked for me. It takes you to a Half Moon Bay review story, then you have to scroll down and take a short survey to read the entire story. It's worth it.
The many restrictions for beach access in California are a pity and reflect the failure of earlier governments to assure that the beaches are always public. Oregon's governor West took care of that for his state back in the 1930s. Drive the coast in Oregon and Washington states and get access almost everywhere. Wealthy buyers of beach property should be more publicly minded and provide access while retaining the privacy of their houses there.
I remember a family 4th of July at Martins when I was about 12, so about 40 years ago. The big thing was to go "smelting" but they weren't running. Didn't stop us from running out with nets whenever someone shouted "they're running".
A great day; fireworks and pallet bonfires. Big fat hot dogs on fire-warmed tortillas with melted jack cheese and salsa. This young gringo thought that was the height of international cuisine (unless it was 'Chinese' sweet-n-sour pork, the kind with the awful red food dye.)
Crazy that someone thinks they can buy and shut access to CA beaches. The beach and ACCESS belong to us all. They belong to the holiday celebrations of Californian families this July 4th, and every one for the next hundred years (sea rise permitting.)
Don't miss out on the discussion!
