Vermont is beautiful. BUT… there’s no ocean.
I grew up in Connecticut. Then I lived in Boston. Plenty of ocean nearby. East Coast ocean is a LOT different (colder, rockier, et cetera) from West Coast ocean, but the beaches have their own charm. And for me, there’s nothing like swimming way out and seeing only water and horizon, spilling out to eternity.
Vermont doesn’t do oceans but we have some amazingly gorgeous lakes. They sort of look like this:
I plan to call it, “Lakeside Mountain”. It seems many of the mountains are lakeside up here.
Since it’s already August, winter is practically right around the corner for us in the North, Northeast. So I capture as much of SUMMER as I possibly can.
Enjoy yours, everyone.
