FROM THE EDITOR

A COASTAL LIFE New England is one of the most coastal regions in our country with 6,130 miles of tidal shoreline and thousands of small islands. This is due to the fact that it has a great many inlets, bays, and peninsulas. Much of this ragged coastline was formed by glacial eskers that were left behind by the Laurentide Ice Sheet over 75,000 years ago. All of the jagged New England coast was influenced by this period. The Maine shoreline is actually longer than California at nearly 3500 miles. New England more than any other region in the country is coastal. Living in New England affords us all some very special benefits and unlimited access to the sea. Our region is rich in history with some of the most interesting and unique communities for living a coastal life and truly wonderful places to visit. We are blessed by the rich bounty of fresh local food sources that our fishing and farming industries provide to us. Our coastlines offer unlimited living choices, remarkable beauty and expansive waterfront access for recreation and enjoyment. Summer is a great time to celebrate the season and the bounty of the sea. A large number of the region’s fishing communities host seafood festivals and fishing-related festivals such as blessings of the fleet in the warmer months, including the communities of Point Judith, Newport, and North Kingstown in Rhode Island - New Bedford, Gloucester, Marblehead, Sandwich, Provincetown, and Scituate in Massachusetts - New London, Connecticut – Hampton, Seabrook and Portsmouth in New Hampshire - Winter Harbor, Bar Harbor, Portland, and Rockland in Maine.

Enjoy the season and celebrate our Coastal Life.
