A recent trip to visit relatives in Florida opened my eyes to how different our world is from one place to the next. I love the sea and grew up within walking distance of our beach on the Long Island Sound in Bay Hills, NY. After college and marriage, we moved to rural Rumney, New Hampshire, with a big lake at one end of our road and a great river for swimming and canoeing down the other end.
When we moved into a house on a Belmont, NH pond that connected by a canal to Lake Winnisquam (New Hampshire’s 2nd largest lake) we enjoyed fishing off the dock, boating, and swimming at our homeowner association’s private sandy beach.
One day we decided to move closer to my family and headed to Raleigh, North cArolina. We are about three hours from the ocean and I miss it, but we try to find the time to head down to Daytona Beach where another relative has a pool and is about six miles from beautiful sandy beaches.
