Colonial Beach, what are you thinking?

Colonial Beach, what are you thinking? It is bad enough that you charge $10 a day to park on a gravel parking lot and chase more business away, but then you make it so I have to roll in my wheelchair anywhere from 200 to 400 feet in the gravel to put $10 in your parking machine then get a ticket that I have to roll all way back to put in the window of my car before even going into any of your local businesses!

The town officials seem to have lost their minds!

Sorry you had that awful experience!

Businesses purchased parking spaces for their customers. Why didn't you park in one of those spots?

Well, if you must know it was my Birthday and the riverboat parking was full one of the few times a year that they are lucky enough to do so. I think that the parking lot next to it is available to anyone wanting to pay the $10 to park there (which I did not mind at all thinking it will help the beach) and you would think in this day and time that any improvements done to any thing must be by the state codes in effect at the time. which today does include everything being handicapped accessible.

If you go a street over, there are a couple handicapped spots right on the beach. It's a lot easier to park there and then head back towards the shops than to park and maneuver in that gravel- and the spots are free (not even a meter). However, if there is a big crowd, they do tend to get taken up by ten am. For us, that gravel lot is completely useless.

I'm sure Alan will appreciate have dozens of people asking him if they can park there now....Sheesh!
