    The famous multi-colored cliffs at Aquinnah. According to Wampanoag legend, Moshup (their primary deity), dashed whales against the rocks before he ate them for breakfast, ergo the colors...

    I hear you, Pete. I've always lived next to the ocean - half of my life in Seattle on Puget Sound, the other half in Boston. I don't think I could ever live inland for very long. There's something about waking up in the morning with the cool smell of salt wafting through the window...
