Not Saint Sebastian River.

The Dutch claimed this area based on Henry Hudson (English) discovering it under contract to the Dutch.
The English claimed the same area based on John Cabot "Giovanni Caboto" (Italian) discovering it under contract to the English before Hudson.

The town has an English name, the island has a native american name.

Of course people had been fishing there for thousands of years before this dispute.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

1st permanent european settlement on the island was late 1700's, before that the island was a pine and cedar forest

More fun facts later.

A French swimmer holds the record of 6hrs 37mins for around the island swim marathon.

It`s gotta be the Margate Bridge in Margate City.

Absecon Island had the Native American name of Absegami.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

If that is Absecon then it must be the Longport bridge leading to Longport, NJ.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Andrew has it.

Margate Bridge to Margate on Absecon Island, the pier in the second photo is where Margate meets Ventnor.
The Longport Bridge is a fixed bridge with 25ft clearance.
Margate Bridge is a bascule bridge.

To get to Margate from Great Egg Harbor Inlet head west to Ocean City under the south end of Ocean Drive Bridge 65ft clearance, then clockwise around the shoal behind the bridge (or if used to the area north end of the bridge), then north under the Longport/Somers Point Bridge 55ft clearance to the ICW channel, then southeast to the north side of the fixed Longport Bridge 25ft clearance, then north to Margate.
Power boats go under the Longport Bridge after entering the inlet saving at least 5 miles.

Don't do this at low tide. Once at Margate better than 10ft at slips 20ft off the bulkhead.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thanks Ulladh,

Couldn`t let one of these aussie guys guess what a local kid should know. I`m just glad you didn`t ask which exit it was on.

Here you go Mark, as promised. Personally forgetting which one it is, name the group of islands.
