F Cove Barnegat Bay NJ

F Cove in Mantaloking looks like it is in the process of being closed. Who can blame them?Its supposed to be a wildlife refuge.. Years of trash being left behind, DJ boats pumping out music and an ever steady flow of fights, marine police, and plenty of BUI's to go around has left a bad taste in alot of locals mouths. This once great spot is now being blocked off with pilings, not to close the cove, but to make it inaccesable to boaters and partygoers to give the wildlife a thriving environment. A place where familys once spent time is now a party spot and everyone is paying the price. thoughts?

Sad, but inevitable. There's just too damn many people trodding around this world nowadays, and not everyone can be responsible. It only takes a few to ruin it for everyone.

I bet there's not hardly one person on this forum who doesn't remember a quiet, secluded spot of wilderness when they were young....that has now succumbed to urban sprawl or development. (how's that for multiple negatives?) As long as the population grows, expect less and less sanctuary from all the insanity.
