The beach on Fenwick Island is worth billions of dollars and costs billions, but the one on Assateague is free and priceless.
Anyone who loves the Eastern Shore, or wants to learn just a little, should read "Three Stooges vs. Revelation" over at The Last Word On Nothing. It might help to know that Fenwick Island = Ocean City, and that "down the ocean" in Bawlamerese sounds more or less like "Danny Ocean". This essay explains why I have always preferred Assateague to Ocean City...so well that I wish I had written it. I'll have to settle for a link. RTWT.
