I don’t live near the Sea, but my hometown is located on the shores of Lake Ontario – one of the Great Lakes in New York State.  I grew up just over a mile from the lake and the Lake Ontario Beach Park.  I live a little farther inland now, but my husband and I often go to the Beach and walk the pier (pictured above).

As a kid, I spent most summers in the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence Seaway so I spent a lot of time near water when I was young.  Some of my happiest memories are those I spent with my cousin, lying on our tummies on a sun-warmed dock, peering over the edge and watching the sunfish swimming around in the water below us.  I can hear the seabirds, and I can smell the gasoline from the boat motors of the fishermen around us.

It has always been my dream to retire and live near the water where I can hear the waves lapping the shore all the time.
