Is it ok to remove a piece of broken glass for the protection of those who walk barefoot on the beach (or is being barefoot a crime too?) ?
Depends if it falls under the definition of "Artsy Sea Glass." If so, no take. Otherwise, you take your chances with the local constabluary.
In our town it is illegal to smoke cigars (except in your own home or car), illegal to fly drones over any public area, illegal to have alcohol in any public place save for restaurants and private homes (no beer on the beach), illegal to have your dogs on the beach even with a leash during the 3 summer months, illegal to fish, spearfish, or pick up a freaking rock off the beach, illegal to dig holes in the sand for the kids, illegal to surf except in marked areas, illegal to launch any windsurfer, catamaran, or rowboat off the beach, illegal to be on the beach after10 pm, illegal to show boobs on the beach (I particularly dislike that rule), .... the list goes on.... Good thing the diving is fantastic quite often and the place so pretty. M
