Something to do with walking on water no doubt--is there a bridge somewhere?

I would have thought buckshot would have blown straight through with that choke--are you sure it wasn't birdshot? Or did you choose your weapon?

At the bottom of the hill is a fishing pier. I don't think anyone in their right mind would drive out on it, but ya never know.

Sounds like the condemned and soon-to-be-destroyed Newport News Fishing Pier, a long-remaining Eastern portion of the old James River Bridge. For a long time it was considered, and was, too dangerous for road traffic: now it has been determined unsafe even for fishermen to walk out on. And is.
