I have been going to the beaches of Narragansett Bay my whole life and have many happy memories. My favorite memory is when I brought my oldest son to the beach the first time. It was at Sand Hill Cove. He was just over 1 year old and was walking. I held his hand while we walked to the edge of the water. His expression of amazement and joy as he first experienced a wave washing over his feet is something I will never forget. I remember thinking then how lucky we were to live close enough to the ocean that my child could experience it on a regular basis.
