FL - Controversy returns to Winston Lane in Inlet Beach in the form of beach vending issues

Controversy seems to have found a home at 210 Winston Lane.

The home and the beach behind it were sold in May after the scheme fell through, and now a new owner has stirred things up by allowing a vendor, Rent Gear Here, to peddle beach umbrellas, chairs and recreational items to all comers.
