from a friend....

Huge! and come all the questions like, 'if i go out in my Kayak with my dog do we both have to pay? does the kayak need a Hol Chan sticker and do I get a discount because i'm almost a resident and own a house on the beach in the reserve and what if I spear a fish from my own dock?"

Am told this also includes Mata Frances Lagoon and the Bajos ..... Great news!
This means that over 10,000 acres will be protected.
A very exciting thing indeed.
