I grew up in York, Maine, and rarely wore shoes in the summer. As kids, we would pile into my mother’s station wagon and drive a few miles to the Harbor Beach—the locals’ beach—and swim until sundown. I learned to live like I was on vacation everyday. When I moved to Newburyport five years ago, it was no accident. This town embodies so much of what I love about my childhood: beautiful ocean, woods, and a sense of local community. I feel inspired by the places I see and people I meet. I hope you enjoy reading about them. Have a local person, place or thing that deserves a plug? Email me at email@example.com.
