I remember the change of the senses with the move (to present day since I still live in the Triangle area): no more salty / fish smell in the air, less purified air, no more ocean sounds (waves, gulls, wind, the sea grass brushing up against one another, etc.), and most of all, no more wonderful sight of the ocean. I used to volunteer to pick up trash from the beach after tourist season as well as help out with sea turtles once or twice. I work at the EPA and am happy that I work at an agency that helps protect the ocean. I just wish I could see it more often.

Lazy, sun filled days of surf, tides, sand, brightly colored umbrellas, blankets and chairs. Or boat outings that resulted with bussels of crabs for a family Sunday dinner of garlic crabs, crabs pomadora and spaghetti. Sunscreen consisted of iodine and baby oil. Not adviseable for today based on our current knowledge.

Living at the Jersey Shore has been a life long dream that we made come true 10 years ago. There truly is nothing like coming home to the lake in my yard and beach a 1/2 block away. This year, our lake has been noticeably polluted and I tried my best to get it cleaned up to no avail. Any guidance you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Good luck with the summit. It sounds great!
