The teaser movie shows a kayak near a TDC trash receptacle that was not removed. I learned that the TDC is not enforcing removal of such items, which is an undocumented exception to the rule.

"Articles that are stored adjacent to or underneath personal walkovers will not be removed unless there is TDC maintained trash receptacle at that location. Any personal items left near county walkovers or adjacent to any of the 400 trash receptacles maintained by the Beaches of South Walton Tourist Development Council (TDC) will be removed without being tagged."
