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

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.


This Month

a few things happening around here

talking to my catbirds every morning // wading through the lowtide flats with Stephen // enjoying my treehouse deck and all the plants I'm cultivating //  adventuring with mom every Tuesday // discovering all the roses in bloom in town // exploring the less traveled trails and spaces as the tourists invade // learning about food forests // making rose water from the beach roses // celebrating the Portuguese Festival again! // welcoming summer! // making it work
