There is a place I like to go, a small town, a beach town, an island … I’ve been going there since childhood. And something about that place has gotten into my blood.
A town administrator said “the uniqueness of Conanicut Island. ‘It’s so extraordinarily beautiful: the landscape, the seascape, the village, the sense of place. People are willing to come forward to preserve and protect that. I don’t think you will find many places where people have so much gratitude towards where they live.’”
It’s a combination of factors: small village, beaches, rocky shores, lighthouse, farmland, quiet streets and even quieter neighborhoods.
