Someday, I want to build my house on an isthmus, so I can look off to my left and see one ocean, and look off to my right and see another one. The only thing is, I don't want the isthmus to be too narrow. I'm afraid someone would decide to build a canal right through my back yard.

Yes, I'm dreaming of a wide isthmus.
