Well ain't this just peachy on the beachy!
Someone get a cluebat. Please.
Another judge is in the news who has apparently checked out from the realm of good sense. Link
Nude sunbathers can continue to let it all hang out along a secluded stretch of San Onofre State Beach, unless someone objects.
Orange County Superior Court Judge Sheila Fell ruled Wednesday that state parks officials can cite sunbathers and swimmers in the buff only if a private citizen complains.
It's the same policy that has been in place since 1979, but complaints of lewd behavior prompted a crackdown by state parks officials earlier this year. (emphasis added)
Uhhh, you miss something there Judge? There WERE (as in ALREADY HAVE BEEN) complaints related to the nudists behavior at the beach.
So why this post? What does it matter to me? Live and let live dude!
This is the beach we (as in, family with kids) were camping at just two weeks ago. It was on my short list to return regularly. That trip was the first time we'd camped there. I'll have to keep an eye on this now.
Lots of folks talk down the San O' campground due to it's placement alongside the I-5 and railroad and it's plain jane layout on a straight stretch of old Highway 101 right of way. Well, we really enjoyed it.
I'm half deaf so don't care about the noise. Since all the sites are laid out along the same side of the road, the sites were actually pretty private. Plus it's close to other beaches and the town of San Clemente so we had options for getting out.
