When the sun is over the tropic of cancer the date is June 21, the start of summer. For the start of spring it is over the equator.

Summer jobs

I think you have a point about that. Back then I worked all summer at the lake as well as all of my friends. Career jobs they weren't!

well

That well was said to be over 300 feet deep. Don't think that the seepage from the johns ever contaminated it. Never heard of anyone getting sick from the water.

couldn't agree more

Put the restaurants (and maybe a coffee shop at the end of the pier) in the old ballroom. Put the boat showroom somewhere else.
