JohnA: Out, Out Damn Tourist

JohnA: I'm a Chamber of Commerce guy when it comes to tourists, as I know the economic impact they provide to the area. It's just that by the end of August we're ready for a break from the hordes. We don't mind sharing paradise but it's great when we finally get our peace and quiet back. That's our September reward, and like many locals, we look forward to it.

DFO: I'll confess that I'm tired to death of having tourists all over our waterfront and downtown. Mrs. O & I drove thru downtown Cda en route to our customary walk along the north shore. I'd thought that the deluge of tourists had subsided because we were turning the corner to fall. But downtown was packed. The waterfront less so. We'll have to wait for Labor Day.

Question: Are you tired of tourists and visitors overrunning the waterfront?
