    Inter-railers are the ambulatory equivalent of McDonalds, walking testimony to the erosion of French culture.
    Alice Thompson (b. 1963)

    We often love to think now of the life of men on beaches,—at least in midsummer, when the weather is serene; their sunny lives on the sand, amid the beach-grass and bayberries, their companion a cow, their wealth a jag of driftwood or a few beach plums, and their music the surf and the peep of the beech-bird.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
