What a strange summer it’s been. Sheltering in place. Masking. Social distancing. I bought a new swimsuit I haven’t worn. I’ve lost weight over the past year and would love to buy some new clothes, but…well…why? By the time I can go anywhere to wear them, the weight might—shudder—be back where it was last year.
Creating summer memories has required being more…creative. So 14 of us did our best. We “found” a place called Last Chance Beach and got to know its legend, its residents, its visitors, and all the best places to go. We hope you’ll enjoy going there with us.
