That one's too easy... if your toes get wet and salty, you're at the
end of the province!

It should be interesting though, since the provincial outline should
match up with the outline of the island as well. Which one has better
resolution? Also, would it be better to have the coastline and
provincial boundary share nodes to conserve space in the database? Is
that possible? I'm still not clear on how that all works.

We have the longest coastline in the world, and quite a bit of that
will be part of the provincial and national border. When we are
talking about tens of thousands of nodes, it will add up. Efficient
usage of resources is always good.
