(Poll) Girls who've seen the ocean

There's a song I remember from long ago which contains lyrics that I always found really evocative:

Their lives ran in circles so small,
They thought they'd seen it all;
And they couldn't make a place for
A girl who'd seen the ocean.


('Memories of East Texas' by Michelle Shocked)

The reason it stuck in my mind was, well, I couldn't really conceive of how anybody over the age of five could have never seen the ocean. But then again, I live on an island, rather than in East Texas or anywhere similar... So here's a poll!
