Re: Not one nice Marina from Trenton to Essington, Pa
ok--I'll buy that.
having grown up in Delaware County and having spent my summers as a youth on the Chesapeake Bay I believe the answer can be summed up in two sentences:
1) because the Delaware River and it's shoreline in this area is all industrial and ugly
2) The Chesapeake Bay is only a 45 minute drive from there and is beautiful.
Why eat hamburger when you have have filet mignon?
ps: there's not a single decent marina until you get to the C&D Canal.
My step son has worked as a dock hand at the Chesapeake Inn for the last three summers while he was in school and folks coming from the Delaware to the C&D Canal think they've landed in an Oasis compared to the Delaware.
There isn't a device on this world that can measure the indifference I have for that statement.
