Island life

with 6 comments

I’ve been wondering over the last day or two: how many Manhattanites have ever put any part of their body in the water that surrounds the island? Aside from those who might do some water sports, I’m guessing that it’s a very low number. And is there any island on the planet where the proportion of inhabitants who haven’t touched the surrounding water is so high?

  1. Whenever I go to a beach in England, I consider it my duty, as an Englishman, to have a paddle.

  3. The San Juan Islands near Seattle? (You can ask when you go) The Aleutian Islands in Alaska?

  4. Those are fairly uninhabited though, right?
    I’m more thinking of the proportion of the folks that live there, not the smallness of number.

    freaken super-duper cold but touchable, swimable, kayakable skiable,snorkable, wadeable, and durning the summer jump-inable. :)
