I was lucky to spend some time with my New England ohana this past weekend. And even though it's been much too long since our last time together, it was still like being welcomed home.
And when you are in Narragansett, RI, local means 'lobstuh.' Live caught in the morning. 7-minute boil for dinner.
I'd forgotten how undeserved this perception is.
The Atlantic water in Rhode Island is clearer, warmer and simply feels cleaner than Santa Cruz. It may not be Molokini blue, but it is sparkly clear and no wetsuit required. And you can most definitely surf there too.
Thank you to my New England ohana for welcoming me after such a long absence.
