Also include the vast natural resources that have yet to be tapped from the ocean.
Essay Topic 2

Essay Topic 3
Write an essay about how plans often do not work out. Use the many escape plans of Ned Land that never came to fruition. Discuss how this is often true in real life that plans do not work out the way they were conceived.
