Spending summers at the shore is pretty much a given. Despite being overrun with tourists and seagulls (flying rats!), hitting the beach is the quintessential go-to activity. But… it’s been done. For someone who lives here year ‘round, it can get a little stale.
For me, just being outside in the sun is great. To be in the woods, and on water, away from crowds, is my favorite summer fun.
There aren’t drastic elevation changes, so there are really no white water rivers. After a hard rain, the waterways get deeper, but they are still easily navigated.
A kayak, and a paddle, and I am floating in heaven.
Cool water beneath my keel, blue skies above me, the shade of the trees, the music of the woods, and I can feel all the stress ease away and a peace wash over me.
