Sometimes you get what you pay for.
I went to the beach today, Ive felt exceptionally tired this week and there is nothing as rejuvenating as a day at the beach. For the last year and a half I have had to move north from
I had my new snorkeling gear in the car so I thought I would go and check out a park that Ive planned to visit with some people at work to snorkel on its reef. (One of the few easily accessible spots near here). I figured if I was going to pay $10 bucks for parking it should at least be the park with the reef. Now I would not ordinarily consider my self cheap but when I found out they were charging $18.00 for parking, I thought I would shop around for a better deal. This is the beach not Disney World. I went to the next park and it also was $18.00 for parking. I asked if their were yearly passes available and was told yes $30.00 for the year and todays $18.00 would go towards the yearly pass. Now thats more like it, right?
I decided that if I was going to pay the $30.00 it should at least be for the park that has the reef, so back to Red Reef I went, (this is so not like me). When I got to the gate I asked the attendant about the yearly passes and he asked if I lived in Boca and I said yes, then he asked if I lived in East or

The game was getting old and I was supposed to be relaxing, right? I asked about the reef and the attendant said that there is good news and bad news.

The good news was the 1 park that my pass would be good for was right next door and if I would park at the very North side of the park then the reef was only about a 300 yard walk down a boardwalk. By now I had enough and daylight was a wasting so I went down to still another park and was delighted to find that parking was only $5.00.
I would recommend to anyone that was considering which one of these beaches to go to that you not choose the
