As a young girl I kept a daily journal of my summers on the South Coast and Cape Cod. I love to write about my travels, photograph, and meet tourists and locals who are making a difference in our community. My mission is to keep you updated on all the South Coast has to offer and I welcome you to come along with me on this journey!
