I'm Melissa. I own 38 swimsuits and twice as many caftans.

I've been jumping in pools since before I knew how to swim*. 

Now I live on a sandbar in the middle of the ocean. Provincetown, Cape Cod, is my home and the Caribbean is my playground. 

In between, you can find The Super Mr., Stephen (our rescue spaniel-dachshund), and me
at the corner of Swim Up Bar and Beach. 

*My sister saved me.
