Audio Excerpt

You're just South of a bay with a pretty interesting name, Pumpkin Bay. If you look at it from above, well, it kind of looks like a pumpkin. I couldn't find any information on the true origin of the name, so I'm just going to assume it's because of that.

You might be wondering how many people actually see Pumpkin Bay from the air, well in this case, a lot. Pumpkin bay is home to the Pumpkin Bay Seaplane Base, so you might just see some water capable planes coming in for landing or taking off.

There's two types of planes that operate in the water. Float planes basically have big pontoons instead of wheels, while sea planes actually have a hull, like a boat. Sounds fun, I wonder if I can water ski behind one?
