how can it be a +1 when we have no idea what's gross!


Just what I want on a beach vacation, to be surrounded by cars in a giant parking lot...

The smell of exhaust fumes, oil, coolant and fluid dripping from leaky engines onto the sand...

I'll say it again.

gross.


You have quite the imagination and you couldn't be furthest from the truth.....you must be confused with some local beach you've been to recently....lol

I've never been a fan of allowing vehicles on beaches like that.

Cars have been on that beach almost since the car was invented. Heck, NASCAR racing started on that beach ...

You are welcome to your opinions and personal taste, am I not welcome to mine?

I don't need to be there to know I would not like it.

Wow.
Melodramatic much?
I guess you don't get to too may beaches.
Hears a little advice. Not that it will be noted.
Sometimes it's OK to turn off your self righteous attitude toward the environment. Especially when it doesn't apply.
The beaches that I've been to didn't show signs of dripping fluids and leaky engines. That is a figment of your imagination and your ignorance biasing your opinion.
Try it some time. You might just like it.

I felt the same thing when I saw the two pictures, my word was "disgusting" tho. You displayed what was "gross" quite perfectly. Pristine beach in one pic and a prettiest parking lot/road ever in the next. ...Although I thought the Orlando Airport parking garage is pretty wicked with garden like courtyards and stuff. I often thought it would be cool to ride down a beach like that, but I have to say that those pictures side by side make me wonder which is more inviting.

Much like my argument with GS, I would have thought the same but what I witnessed was a cleaner and more non-intrusive environment then you'd think and far more receptive then any beach on this Island.

Talk about ignorant self righteous attitudes.

Also even if those cars were all electric vehicles powered by alfalfa sprouts, it'd still be gross. I spend a lot of time at beaches, and I don't want to be surrounded by cars when I am at them. Nor unattractive shore front development for that matter.

Okay, so New Smyrna Beach or Daytona Beach will never see Greenspree. That's cool! Considering that those beaches attract hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, you probably won't be missed :)

Me, I'm sitting on the balcony of my room on one of those unattractive shore front developments gazing over a moonlit Daytona Beach with the waves rolling in and making a wonderful lullaby that we will soon fall asleep to.

And tomorrow we'll go for a walk on that beach and won't be the least bit distracted or turned off by all the cars. All we will see are the happy families.

Different strokes :D





(I'll be sure to post plenty of pics :wink: )

There are plenty of beaches where you can take your dog. Thankfully the national parks try and look out for wildlife.

Hey Craiger, is it because I am a new poster , or what? I just stated a fact, that it is quite a contrast compared to here, not like I ever want vechiles to be able to drive the beaches here. Jeepers we cannot even walk our dogs , on a leash, on the National Parks Beaches here. And , yes, I do know that we have Piping Plovers nesting in the National Parks Beaches that require protection. I just find it hard to believe that while we cannot even walk a dog on the beach(national park) but they can drive cars, highway, down in Daytona, Florida. I know that your next argument will be, and yes, I have other beaches to go to, and I will, but unfortunately I will have to leave my home to do so, but no big deal, will do so, and by the way, I do pick up after my dogs, 4 big dogs that is. I also want to see the Piping Plover not become extinct....
