Taking out the buried post on Jomtien Beach near Soi 3 was not an easy job. There was much hammering on the cement upright to break it down. A beach chair vendor told me it’s 2 to 3 meters deep, so I just beat the heck out of it, brought it way below the beach level, broke off the wires, covered it, did a small dance to pack down the sand and moved on to the also protruding fence post. This I beat so badly I could pull it out. Of course I dug some deep holes with both before I did my thing. In all it took maybe an hour of blood, sweat and no tears, during which time some vendors that sell their wares stopped by, shook my hand and went their way.
Many people have hurt themselves quite badly on these two very dangerous posts that were protruding a foot above the sand and when the tide is high, people don’t see them. They have been there for many years. A friend reminded me of them and the dangers.
