Last week, I got my November Coastal Living magazine in the mail, and I was really (really) excited to find a nice write-up about Duxbury, Massachusetts in their “Dream Towns” feature.
The first time I went to Duxbury, I was less than a week old, and my parents took me down to the beach after spending a day at my grandfather’s marina in nearby Marshfield. I don’t remember that particular trip, but I remember many, many after. Duxbury beach was always “our” beach, the “family beach.” And at just under thirty minutes south of where I grew up, most of my childhood summers were spent in town.
Beautiful, quaint, calm, full of marshes and waterfront housing: they don’t call it “Deluxe-bury” for nothing. But still, everyone is friendly, the atmosphere is nothing but welcoming. It really is a dream town.
Check out the article for yourself here: Dream Towns: Duxbury, MA.
Here’s some pictures that I found of Duxbury and me through the years- from age three, right up until last summer! Enjoy.
