Travel writer, Charlene Peters wrote about her recent off-season getaway to Gloucester, Massachusetts.
The lulling sound of gentle rolling waves hitting the shoreline. The scent of salt in the sea air. The visual treat of puffy white clouds skimming the horizon. It’s off-season in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and the ocean is a full-on sensory kaleidoscope on this unseasonably warm day.
I’m at Good Harbor, one of my favorite beaches in all of New England. Summertime here involves building memories with friends and family in jumping waves, surfing, paddleboarding and picnicking on the sand under Technicolor beach umbrellas. Outside of summer, when warm weather permits, beachgoers abound to absorb as much sunlight as they can before the weather returns to its regularly scheduled season.
