We had a wonderful day boating on the intracoastal waterway. Loved seeing the $million plus homes. Stop and had lunch at a restaurant. Stopped and dropped a anchor on a sand bar and watched million dollar boats go bye.

Best fun ever just hanging out in Lake Boca on a Saturday afternoon. Take your boat, some brews, hop in the water and walk around and meet the people. There's even a food pontoon - great hot dogs!
