No one used to complain about dunes pollution

Arroyo Grande



No one complained when Cecil B. DeMille filmed his movie in the dunes in the ‘30s, and there have been vehicle activities in the dunes ever since. During the ‘70s, motor homes five deep as far as the eye could see from Oceano to Devil’s Slide pulled sand vehicles and families to the dunes for long holidays. Moreover, doesn’t anyone remember when newspapers reported there were more than 100,000 folks playing in the dunes and all the motels in the area were full? No one complained then; everyone was having fun.

 Lets leave the dunes as they are. It won’t be long before the same folks doing the complaining will find something else to complain about.
