You are correct about the M-D line taking a southerly heading when it hits Delaware. But the M-D line also serves as a cultural boundary between north and south, and this concept could make things a little grayer (literally and figuratively, I suppose). I brought this up only because, years ago when we visited Cape May and accidentally stumbled across the Lee vacation home, I remember reading somewhere — a brochure perhaps — that south Jersey was a vacation destination point for many southerners. In the technical sense, Cape Ma, et al, are not below the M-D line, they are clearly east of it. But in the cultural sense it might be an entirely different matter. When it's pointed out to me that something is below the M-D line, I can grasp what it implies. Who talks about east or west of the M-D line? I honestly don't know if this is true or not, but you have to figure southerners must have found kindred spirits in South Jersey. Why else head north for vacation?
