Jersey Boy relocated to Upper Chesapeake Bay, and quickly noticed the bumper stickers. "Welcome to the Eastern Shore, now GO HOME". Yea, there are born here's and come here's, but after 13 years, the locals are starting to overlook the Jersey accent.

Beautiful four seasons, although one of them could get a little shorter..

Mom was born in Pen Argile, and lived in East Bangor. She married dad, and they moved to west Philly. 1711 North 60th street. I summered on Lake Wallenpaupack PA    Peps Inn and Peggy's and Whiteys if memory serves. Do like that ring bologna. My best friend's dad had a house on the lake and his sister Kathy was runner up for Miss Pennsylvania back then.

Delaware, OH

Not a lot of big water around here, but 3 decent lakes within 50 miles, with the closest launch 2.5 miles from the end of my driveway!

I learned how to water ski when I was about 10 up here on Lake Wallenpaupack.  Rather than our usual vacation at the Jersey shore, we came to the lake for a week and rented a boat.  My sister and I took a lesson at the Boat Shop and then my Dad, who was previously a boat owner, rented a boat for the day.  Good times!

Bolton Landing, New York.  On Lake George - "Queen of the American Lakes"

"Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw; formed by a contour of mountains into a basin thirty-five miles long and from two to four miles broad, finely interspersed with islands, its water limpid as crystal and the mountainsides covered with rich groves of silver fir, white pine, aspen and paper birch down to the water, here and there precipices of rock to checker the scene and save it from monotony. An abundance of speckled trout, salmon trout, bass, and other fish with which it is stored, have added to our other amusements the sport of taking them.”—Thomas Jefferson"

The Adirondack Park, the largest park preserve in the U. S comprising 6 million acres or 9,375 square miles. It’s as large as Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Everglades, Great Smoky National Park and the Grand Canyon, all wrapped into one. It’s larger than the state of New Hampshire.
