New Hampshire has a small Atlantic Ocean coast. We have lots of lakes too. But most of the ocean and lake coastlines are lined with private properties that prohibit citizens from accessing these bodies of water, which are owned by the state, not the wealthy homeowners. The supreme court has decided that poor people's homes can be confiscated by local governments for the benefit of corporations. Well I would like to see this same law applied to huge beachfront trophy houses, so that these properties might be returned to the people. Fair is fair.

Yeah, we get a bit of that here. Nothing much changes. Nice picture.

what a great commentary...I so agree with you. here in Oregon, there are NO private beaches and I love that.

I doubt it will happen that way. If the properties are large then a)they belong to wealthy people, who never get screwed and b)the properties garner more in taxes, and will therefore be deemed more worthy of preserving as is.

Being a small property owner surrounded by wealthier neighbors myself, this is worrisome and aggravating to no end. Great illo!
