This is where we laugh. Swim. Dance. Shuck corn to grill. Sleep in.
This place belongs to my grandparents, Kate + Charlie.
It used to belong to my great-grandparents Art + Frances.
And it will always belong to us.
The past two summers I have visited I have feared it would be my last.
It’s incredible what a profound effect the impermanence makes.
I have seen this place with new eyes. Eyes of gratitude and eyes of love.
This place isn’t just a place.
It is everything that is good about us.
And each image is my attempt to hold onto that good forever.
One day all I want to be able to say is that I left a legacy of love, just like my grandparents Kate + Charlie.
For them I am forever grateful.
