I have received some very concerning information, and feel that I should pass it on. I have checked in the press but have seen nothing about the incident. This has been reported to me from a very reliable source, and in fact originates from the Sandy Lane Owner's Association.
It seems that a couple were robbed at gunpoint at around noon on Independence day. They were staying at the Sandy Lane Hotel and were apparently walking along the beach. They were then held up and robbed by a guy with a gun just to the south of the Sandy Lane owners beach facility.
This is somewhere all my family regularly walk. I do not intend to stop our walks and do not think anyone should do likewise. However, I think it is important that people know these incidents are taking place in order that they do not carry valuables.
I will now make sure I will not be wearing any jewellery at all (not even my wedding ring) when I walk along the beach, and I will not be walking alone. I think it is important not to be an attraction to a would-be robber.
