Just got back from vacation. On vacation I visited Tangier Island, VA. To get there we took the ferry from Crisfield, MD. On the way back from the Island one couple noted how neat and clean the homes and yards were. The couple had visited Smith Island and said there were a lot of junk cars and things. I suppose disposal of items would be problematic with no land fill. But the couple attributed the cleanness of Tangier to the religious nature of the community. The idea that a people's Christian morals could make a difference visibly in a community intrigued me.
