GG / Fav beach?

Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, in Brittany. Stay here if you go!

GG / What does going to the water’s edge do for you? How does it help you? 

I’ve always found it to be super calming but with the promise of adventure.

GG / When is your favorite season to be by the water? Winter? Spring? Summer? Fall?

Winter and fall. Growing up in New England, those were the only seasons that the beaches were calm and quiet. Something about the cold crisp wind and deep clouds let’s my imagination run wild. 

Has your place changed over the years? Has your relationship with it changed?

My favorite beaches have changed depending on where I travel to or choose to live but rocky coastlines will forever have my heart. 

What’s your best beach-combing find?

I love looking for sea glass and found the most beautiful pink piece the first week we moved to the island! I’ve only found the standard beer bottle green since but the treasure hunt continues. 

Lightening round!
