Abstract: Much has been said about the usurpation of public land by boathouse and caravan owners - this extends, it seems, to public car parks as well. Two car parks next to the Riviera Hotel in Marfa are occupied by boat trailers and caravans. When such paraphernalia are not physically occupying spaces within the car park, makeshift props, such as cones, are used to reserve them. To add insult to injury, some caravans seem to be permanently planked within the car park, propped up on bricks, effectively taking up parking space for three or four cars. Aren't boathouses meant to house boats and car parks meant to house cars, rather than boathouses housing individuals and car parks housing their mobile homes?
