The Bay side of the point is CLOSED

The point opened today and it never takes too long for this to happen

It never fails the day the point opens people just roll on through the closed bay section. Even after reading all of a half a dozen signs one the size of a billboard in red no less.
That area is still closed for migratory birds until October 1st.

People, like this guy, read the closed sign and just keep jogging.

This guy didn’t care. He stopped. Read the yellow sign strategically placed by the water side for this very purpose. Then looked around, and just kept going.
Sir you can’t be in there it is closed I yell over to him.
He said .. ” I’m local, it’s fine”
Yeah no it isn’t. He might get to explain that to a ranger later or tomorrow. Someone may have sent these pictures to them, he can’t be that hard to spot in those shorts.
Entitlement is a strange bird, but is not a species allowed to use this area. Every time we see people in there we tell them to help them avoid a fine and for the birds. The answers are always funny. Just stay the F out.
This is how we get more rules and longer closures. We try to be stewards to our beaches and wildlife, because they don’t have a voice. I need a trained pelican that can dive bomb and poop on command

HOW DO YOU MISS THIS BIG SIGN!

Please stay out of the point’s closed bay section. I know everyone likes walking around the point to do the “loop” and explore. That will open on October 1st. Until then there is plenty of beach to explore and usually less people after the holiday weekend. That remains to be seen this year.

Keep your dogs on a leash fore the birds also take their poop home with you, the dog’s not the bird’s

Keep your dogs out of that area and leashed too.
Boaters rafting up in the harbor, there were over thirty last weekend. You can not park on any of the beaches. Getting stuck in the closed section is a big ticket. Last year we counted at least a dozen boats parking on the beach to party, four on the Saturday of Labor day weekend. We have a pool going this year. Need A Delaware Natural Resources Police Officer? Now There Is An App For That
