I learned how to swim in Barnegat Bay. I was five and we had rented a beach house in Lavallette for a month, and my parents enrolled me in swim lessons being taught by an old fart who was obviously the local HS football coach during the school year. He made us all stand around in a circle about waist deep in the water, hold our breaths and stick our faces in. I was frightened and started to cry and he yelled at me to "stop being such a big baby." Did I mention I was five? Anyhow, nascent people-pleaser that I was (I have really grown out of that, by the way) I tried again and managed not to drown. Thanks, Mr. Crusty Old Fart. I am part mermaid now, and if you're still alive, you're still an asshole. One of the happiest days of my life was when I took my daughter into the bay for the first time. Nothing beats spending the day in the waves at the ocean beach, just 4 blocks away from the bay, and then sitting around after taking your outdoor shower, drinking cold beer and watching the sun go down over the bay.
