This holiday weekend I am enjoying the sun and the surf with my grandparents at their summer house on the North Fork of Long Island. The water is still too cold for swimming (just below 60 °F), but the weather’s been beautiful, so I’m not complaining. I must say, probably the only thing I really lament at Sweet Briar is it not being near the ocean. Our 3,000 acre campus boasts two beautiful lakes and all kinds of trails and outdoor activities, but I do miss my beach. That leaves me with June to soak up all the rays and fresh salt air I can.
