“I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."- JFK
Any time I'm visiting Rhode Island, I always try to make it to the lighthouse at Castle Hill Inn. Tucked away on a rocky point- cue the cliche- it's the perfect escape. Perched on the rocky edge whilst watching fisherman and the boats break through the waters before they head out to the Atlantic brought a moment of serendipity to my day. The ocean has this ability to make you feel so small, but is incredibly comforting as well.
Last weekend was no different and as always, my hair was a windy mess and I was dressed like a Acne Studios 90s kid.
It's true: some things never change.
