Like many residents, I don’t frequent the beach as often as I want during the summertime given the number of tourists who want to enjoy their vacations as well. But at a recent visit to Bethany Beach, I saw a need to better the experience for everyone.
Arriving early afternoon, our threesome found a spot in what I would call row three. It was a lovely day with a calm breeze and our view was more than adequate, except that the family near us positioned their chairs so that one chair was six feet from all of the others, and Dad was having a loud conversation with Mom whose chair was six feet away.
We ignored them and began our own small talk.
His children were digging a hole about four feet deep to the right of us, and my friend asked, “Do you think we should tell them that digging holes is against the rules?”
