Scent – A- Mental Memories

I love how scents can evoke a memory whether it’s the smell of food from your child hood or a cologne from a loved one. Today’s run by the bay brought back so many memories. As I came down surprise hill in Colt Park (Bristol RI) I inhaled the unforgettable scent of sea air. Suddenly… Continue reading Scent – A- Mental Memories

Between Yesterday and It Never Happened

There was swimming lessons at summer camp, family gatherings down the Narrows in Bristol, lovely excursions… Continue reading Looking Out and Remembering Back – The Sea…
