On the train to Philadelphia, we had discovered the quiet car completely by accident. A great feature, one that trains in Europe would greatly benefit from. Why this has not been implemented on the other side of the Atlantic, is a mystery to me. We now ask the train attendant for the quiet car, every time we’re about to board a train.
Half an hour later and… what a difference 60 miles make!
A brilliant sunshine, a light breeze, unseasonably warm, an enormous beach, no crowds.
“Enjoy God’s gift to humanity!” an excited fellow walker exclaimed…
“Enjoy!” we echoed, smiling back… “as long as you remain under the boardwalk”, we added silently.
