My favorite memory, so far, is being out on the water with my husband and two kids this summer. You think summer is a time to slow down and relax but it feels even busier than the rest of the year—especially with two young kids. So, we try to enjoy every little bit of nice weather—on the boat, at the beach, everywhere—with each other.

Back when my son was small, we spent a few summers on Jamestown. There are many special Bay-related memories but one of my favorites is of swimming at night in the bioluminescence.

For me over the past few years, the bay has become an escape from the everyday. It gets me away from the craziness of life, business, and the big cities. I love to kayak and fish the bay and I have incredible memories of…

The Birth of the Bay Bottom Blotch

Monday, April 29, 2019

My uncle, Aaron Cohen, one of my biggest fans, heard through a close friend working with Save The Bay that the organization was looking for a mascot to appear at an early fundraising meeting, to hit home the message that pollution in the Bay was a serious problem, with dire consequences. I earned the commission with my proposal for the creation of a weary, soggy, beleaguered creature called the Bay Bottom Blotch, who’d climb out of the bay, appear in the meeting room and deliver an impassioned speech about his intolerable living conditions.

One of my favorite memories on the bay is kayaking with my dog Rocco. He was a young boxer pup at the time and we weren’t really sure how well or if he could swim at all, so my buddy and I tossed an extra life jacket on him, put him in my inflatable raft … Read More

One of my favorite memories of Narragansett Bay was a perfect summer day in New England with my family a couple years ago. We went on a friend’s boat, the kids swam in the water and played by the shore and we enjoyed dinner at an outdoor restaurant overlooking the Bay. We went home smelling … Read More
