If you go poking around the shoreline on the Sea Ranch, chances are good that you will have company.
It is a wonderful place - everybody is curious and quite friendly as long as you stay on your side of the invisible line.
If you get too pushy and insist on crashing their space your would be friends will quietly slip away.
