This is a little stretch of beach in Rhode Island. My family first started going there for the summers a long time ago. I'd have to ask my mom the specifics, but there is a lot of family history there. I know that the first cottage was destroyed in the 1938 hurricane, but they rebuilt, so we still get a chance to have it.
Basically, it is a family cottage on the beach that I have been going to my entire life. My mother spent summers there most of her life as well. The cottage has been added onto over the years and updated as time went by. It sleeps 9, so we can get lots of family members together at once. However, if you are thinking that we have a huge fancy beach house, that is not the case. But don't get me wrong, it is perfect, just the way it is. The cottage is quaint, cozy, and home to most of the best memories I have of growing up spending time with my family, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.
|On 8/8/08 Paula and Matt got engaged at the beach! I haven't been back since this visit. How sad is that?! They already celebrated their first anniversary!|
|Crabbing. Matt even likes to get in on the fun.|
After dinner, we would go for a long walk on the beach or down to the breachway and then we would play cards. Like I said, lots of good memories. I had the good fortune of celebrating my birthday there most years because we would go during the first two weeks in August. Lucky me! I know. I can't think of a better birthday present each year.
