The Ocean: My Happy Place
Growing up in coastal Massachusetts, I was never far from the ocean. I especially loved living on Clark’s Cove in New Bedford. Just around the corner, West Beach always had parking. It didn’t matter the season; it was accessible. If you’re in my Crane’s Cove Crew reader group, you’ll remember the video I posted last month. The photos below were taken on the same day.
I structured Crane’s Cove similar to the New Bedford peninsula. Piney Point Road is smaller and more residential that Rodney French Boulevard, but it has a lot of the same characteristics.
One side of the Piney Point peninsula in Crane’s Cove faces the Cliff Walk Resort’s private beach. Kat’s big pink house offers a private beach that faces out into one half of the cove.
On the other side of the peninsula, the marina and public beach offer a fun place, including restaurants and shops, for townies and tourists to frolic.

From the sky, JC’s air tourists squeal in delight as they realize the cove below is heart-shaped. 🙂
So much of the places I love in New England are in the Crane’s Cove series. If you’ve been there, you understand how the sea finds its way into your soul. 🙂
