I just know here in South Jersey, looking out at the Absecon Inlet between Atlantic City and Brigantine, before the economy tanked and gas went to $5+ dollars a gallon, you could walk across the inlet from AC to brigantine without getting wet due to all the boats.
now-a-days, there might be a dozen out there
In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
