There is something about the ocean in New England.
With its freezing water and quiet beauty, I feel like the ocean in New England is a good stand-in for New England itself- my part of the country is not too flashy, and all the cold weather makes us seem a little unfriendly to the rest of the world.
Once you spend a little time here, though, you see just how gorgeous, how magical, the northeastern states can be.
I love it. A year later, I'm so glad I moved back.
