A few days at the beach always soothes my soul, even though it was so chilly I needed to buy a new sweatshirt. (An expensive but worthy purchase.)
Loving the newly built stairs and wider beaches, created when NY state renovated the seashore last fall. I was there amidst that construction, when I spent a week in Seaview all by myself in September. Gorgeous days, but quite chilly at night. Still, I kept the bedroom windows wide open: the house is close enough to the ocean that I could hear its roar from under the covers.
