I went to Southampton Beach with my husband, my 2 children, my girlfriend, her 3 children and 4 other friends (twelve people in all). The beach was crowded that day so we looked for a spot just passed the life guard, but close enough to them. There was a women sitting further back on the beach. We started to set up our area closer to the water as we had 1 small child with us. The woman kept staring at me so I finally ask her why. She replies "Your blocking my view". I didn't know you can own a view on the beach.
- Editor: What are the the proper beach rules? Normally if the tide goes out I move closer if I value ocean front seating.
This is all you have? This is rude? You came home from the beach so annoyed by this episode that you had to go online and share it. Get a life.ReplyDelete
It is rude. It is rude to squeeze your ruckus just in front of someone else who is trying to enjoy the beach.ReplyDelete
James - What's rude? The family sitting down?ReplyDelete
Yes. I think squeezing 12 people between someone already there and the ocean is pushing the limit.ReplyDelete
I think that if the beach is crowded that you have to expect people to sit in front or even beside you. Just move!ReplyDelete
It is a public beach. Families go to the beach. Give me a break. This should be posted at too Sensitive and Selfish Hamptons.ReplyDelete
