That's no joke. A place of work and toil and abuse has been gentrified into
a complete opposite, a place of resort and leisure and enlightenment.

Now if they'd just get rid of _some_ of those d_at_mned golf courses and
instead used some of that space to preserve components of the historic
Floristic Province... Then I'd say they were truly enlightened. :)

In any event, the whole penninsula is neato. And where else can you see a 3
story tall kelp habitat? OR have 60 lb tuna swim directly at you at
ridiculous speed and turn at THE very last second. Neat neat neat.
