I can't imagine living anywhere else! I’ve lived near the beach on the New England coast my entire life. Living here has meant that the ocean and the beaches have surrounded me and been part of me since the day I was born. I remember building sand castles as a toddler, I remember learning to swim in the ocean, I remember long walks looking for just the right shell for one of my many collections. But most of all, I remember always pausing to look out toward the horizon with an ocean breeze in my face and being in awe at the beauty of the ocean and the beach.
Growing up here means the beach isn’t just for summer and getting tan (but that is an awesome tan -- especially on the beaches the tourists don't know about). but the beach is also for awesome walks in the fall wearing a hoodie and shorts.
