AUUGGHHH@@!!!!!!! Don't get me started. There's a section of beach (and I'm not tellin' ANYONE where it is) that you can only get to on land by hiking a few miles. My wife and I love this spot, and it's worth the drive and the hike. Pretty much deserted... totally quiet, and everything else that goes along with totally deserted. 'Nuff said..
Once last year when we were there, a dead ringer for the boat SHNOOL posted drives up and anchors about 100' away from us, BLASTING the worst noise (like Gary, as a musician, I can't find much music in hip hop.. last I checked, music usually consists of melody, harmony, and rhythm..... not just one of those). Mr. Mid-Life-Crisis eventually waddled a-shore with his bimbo-du-jour in tow to hang on the beach about 30' feet from us.. even though there was a mile of beach available. Fortunately, he was able to crank up his sound system loud enough so it STILL sounded like we were all on the boat with our heads shoved in the woofers. Goody. Thankfully, that's only happened once, but WHAT IS IT WITH PEOPLE?!?!?? How can anyone be so self-centered?
Edited to add the following..
Now that I've read my post, I can see how it could sound like I was the self-centered person. It's not my beach, I don't own it, and who am I to tell THEM how they should enjoy the beach. Yeah... I can see the other side. I guess I should just say that I can't imagine foisting myself and my taste in music on anyone who's obviously tried to find a place to be alone with his wife. I still think it was rude... but maybe it's just me.
