Warning

Private, Keep Out

Sometimes signs beg me to disobey. Sadly I usually do obey, though.  Do you?

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

With that gorgeous view, it's really a challenge to obey the sign! :D

It is a pretty view of the water. Yes, I usually obey the signs! Enjoy your day!

Revrunner said...

I'm of the mind that no beaches ought to be in private hands.

Stefan Jansson said...

Makes me glad I live in Sweden where we have The Right of Public Access. Interesting facts here.

Margaret Adamson said...

Very often there is a very good reason for a sign like that. it could be dangerous or birds could be nesting. great fence thought for this meme

diane b said...

That shouldn't be allowed on a beach. Beaches should be public places and not privately owned. Interesting fence shot.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Great photo!
Yes, I usually obey the signs and maybe that beach could be dangerous...

Andy said...

Yes... these signs I do obey.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Hmmm, what a confusing sign. It seems that if you went to the other side of the fence that you would be behind it.

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Great picture of the beach!
I read this sign as if I was on the wrong side. But how do I get behind the fence? Climb over it? ;) :D
Have a fine day

I agree with Revrunner
however obey because of what Margaret said

Georgette Sullins said...

I obey the signs. You just don't know exactly why it was put there. Margaret has made a very good point.

Sandra said...

I obey them but i don't want to and it makes me want to go behind the fence in this one...

see you there! said...

Mostly I obey and I definitely don't climb fences.

I guess the property owner really means business. The sign and fence sure spoil the view.

Bethany Carson said...

Yep, I obey usually...though sometimes when I'm hiking at parks and by the river it's hard to tell which side of the old fences is state property and which private.

William Kendall said...

I do have to agree with the notion that beaches should be public access, unless, of course, there's a bird or turtle nesting area that must be left isolated.

Felicia said...

yes I do, but usually grumble about it. I have one place I'm going to go ask for permission to get into.

Tanya Breese said...

i'm with revrunner...sadly i watched anthony bourdain in jamaica and all the big resorts can own the beaches and make them private...there are only like 2 public beaches left...nowhere for the natives to go...how sad is that?

Lowell said...

Perhaps that contraption beyond the fence is dangerous. Can't quite figure out what it is. In the case of possible danger I would keep out and here in Florida you could get shot trespassing, so I usually weigh the pros and cons before I fail to follow the instructions on a sign.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Not that many private beaches here EG, but I have to confess I don't always follow the rules, some shots are worth the risk :)

Kerri Farley said...

Yep- most of the time I obey too :)

Pamela Gordon said...

Yes, I'm obedient and respect private property, but, my camera can zoom pretty good. :)

TexWisGirl said...

i don't make a habit of trespassing in texas. :)

Ileana said...

Usually,I respect private property, but I do not understand why should be private beach!

Mary Hone said...

I always want to know why they don't want you there. But, I never find out.

NatureFootstep said...

yes, taht is a bad thing.

If I´m not wrong in Sweden nowadays beaches is always open for everybody to use. Unlss it is a factory or old property.

Hilary said...

Oh it depends. If I can't go in there, my camera lens just might.

DeniseinVA said...

I know what you mean. I came across a beach with a similar sign when we went to Florida fencing the beach off neatly. Felt like walking down to the water and going around it. Felt like it but didn't ;()

Birdman said...

I don't get private beaches. Heck, it's the ocean!

Cloudia said...

a sign of the times

I always liked to think that the beaches belonged to all of us as a part of our country/state, but then I'm known as a "liberal" and a number of people would disagree with me, I'm certain. Terrific capture as always!! Enjoy your day!!

bailey-road.com said...

There is probably good reason for the sign. At least, the fence does not obscure the view.

Cranberry Morning said...

If it says 'Private Property,' I most definitely obey. I'm a firm believer in property rights. Actually, I can't think of a sign I don't obey. Oh. maybe the one that said 'no photography' at Orchestra Hall. I did take a quick, non-flash photo of the stage before people started flooding in to the auditorium. So far, the police haven't shown up at my door.

llandudnopictures said...

Best to err on the side of caution!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Mostly I do try to obey,but must admit there have been times when I 'chose" not to see the sign.

RedPat said...

I would obey but I sure don't like that sign! Isn't it the case that if you are walking along in the water, that is public property? The private part starts at the water's edge.

Karen S. said...

Usually yes, especially when there seems to be a good reason to obey it! Nice capture!

ladyfi said...

Nice view, but shame about the sign!

Ginny said...

So someone owns that whole beach? SO unfriendly...

Malyss said...

when it comes to danger or bad weather,I prefer to obey. Nice mood on the pic anyway.

Grandma Honey said...

Like I often say, give me a rule and I will keep it. :)

cieldequimper said...

I can't help but obey. :-(

Country Wife said...

Wow I've never seen that before on a beach.

Kay said...

I'll obey though the words "Private Property" make me kind of grumpy about it. It says to me "Hey, it's MINE! Stay out!" Moreso than, "be safe, stay out."

Stephanie said...

Sometimes they can be a challenge to obey signs. Love the beach scene shot!

Lois said...

I think they mean it, so I would probably obey!

Pauline Woodcock said...

It seems strange to me that the beach side of the sign would be private property. If that sign were here I'd think it had been turned around. I'd have to know a lot more about the area before I decided to disobey a sign like that.

Jen said...

In Texas? Yes, I obey the no trespassing signs.

But the water is on the other side!!

Ida said...

Sorry to be late commenting.
Yes I do obey the signs.
But I could see why you wouldn't want to. A beach should be enjoyed by all.
