That's the first I have ever heard of that law, and we've lived here full time since 05. If it's on the books
, I can guarantee you it's not enforced.
The way the laws are handled here is pretty cool, as far as we are concerned. Unless you bother someone else enough that they complain, nobody is going to stop you from doing just about anything you want. I've never seen a no shirt, no shoes, no service
sign here. We've taken our well behaved dog into a number of restaurants here. Imagine the outrage in the US if you strolled into a restaurant with your dog.
Smoking is allowed at restaurants. We don't smoke, but don't see any problems with people who do here. Most of the restaurants are open air anyhow. You can buy a cold beer
, opened, ready to go, at the gas stations.
We've been pulled over and told to buckle up, without a word being said about my passengers and their open beers and rum
the authorities WILL come down on you for fishing
in the national park or poaching lobster out of season. Other than that, just behave yourself generally and have a good time.
Any of you cruisers heading through here, we know Bob Pratt and Simon Anderson at the South Side Marina very very well. We live two miles away, and La Gringa is "Polly-on-the-hill" on the morning Cruiser's Net. Sometimes we stop by the Thursday night BBQ's during season. And we've met quite a number of cruisers passing through. Typically people do an internet
search before getting here and find our blog.
Randy and Hideko Abernethy on Swinging on a Star
were the first ones we met. We took them over to Turtle Cove to meet with another St. Francis 50 but I forget the name of it, or the people on board. Been quite a few more since then.
Some our our house wiring
was done by Mike from Dancing Dolphin
...we had a well pump installed by Roger from Manx Cat
... ( hiring cruisers under the table, gasp!) and if you read the blog you can find a lot of info about Capt. Dave Nichols and the schooner Star of the Sea
and their missionary work in Haiti
...that whole crew has been to the house for dinner. Ed and Deb, from Ariel...
I keep thinking of more and more...Bruce from Sara Jane
