Multiple incidents have occured involving resident beachgoers and a tourist who was sitting in front of one of the subject property in the wet sand. The upland property owner has on repeated occasions called the sheriff. The deputies told the tourist that she was not trespassing but suggested that she might want to move from in front of the subject property to avoid being glared at from the beach houses. As the tourist prepared to move she tripped over one of the ropes and fell.

There are now more ropes, more bollards, more signs, extending further towards the waterline than before.
