I laugh at the haters... like this:

Don't get mad at me because I don't want to see your bloomers blowing in the wind... messing up my view.

Seriously, big as the world is... move. Or you can save, buy the beach and let everyone come down there and hang out their laundry while they get a tan.

Sounds like irrational jealousy from a person who has no idea what poverty really is.

That is all.

Rant over.
It is no wonder teacher's are sliding on the "respected" scale.

What makes you think you have the "right" to trespass on private property without have to pay for it?

You sound like the typical "me" generation, "GIVE it to me, I deserve it"

I certainly would NOT want you "teaching" my kids with your type of attitude.

You want it, you pay for it. it is that simple.

I really don't understand the appeal of Severna Park. Sure there are some nicer mansions, but most of the housing stock is old and plain, and most of the amenities are in strip malls along Ritchie Highway.

I say move to a place where you feel more comfortable.
Sandy Point State Park is not that far way from Severna Park. A 15 to 20 minute is such a hardship!

People BOUGHT and developed those property's years ago and YOU have NO right to use them "free".

In my neighborhood in Montgomery County, you would be fine for that.....where are you from?

I'm not suggesting people give up their property or open new public beaches now. I know it won't change, nor am I suggesting that it has to change. I'm just saying it sucks that water access in Anne Arundel County is limited to a couple of state parks or walking along the docks in Annapolis, given how much water there is in the region.

I now live in Massachusetts and there are countless parks, beaches, and small towns where people can experience and enjoy the water. There are also plenty of privately owned homes along the water, too. It's a decent balance.

Blame the politicians. The County or State could have bought up property years ago and chose NOT to do so. So, the individual people bought it.That is the way it is. Complaining and casting insults against those that DID buy the property is showing a sign of jealousy.

I understand that's the way it is, and as I said, I'm not saying it has to change. I didn't cast any insults on anyone. I only said that I don't understand the appeal of Severna Park. And no jealousy here; I now live in a place that I enjoy very much.

considering the amount of shoreline that MD has, it is pretty sad that so little of it is open for public access.

Well I can think of several other places in Anne Arundel County that have public waterfront access aside from Sandy Point State Park such as Downs Park, Fort Smallwood Park, Quiet Waters Park, etc. I don't quite understand the OP's gripe on that front.
