Beach-side

Having spent my childhood summers in Maine, I have a thing for the beach. While I gravitate towards clapboard and shingled homes, it really doesn’t matter where I am. I love the sound, the smells, the feeling of dipping my toes in chilly salt water. I’m not one to sit and lounge in the sun for hours, but there’s nothing better than spending an afternoon by the shore, in my opinion.

Fresh off the plane from our Florida vacation, I thought I’d share some shots that bring it all back – well, minus the Florida part:)
