"The sea! the sea! the open sea! The blue, the fresh, the ever free!"
- Barry Cornwall
Whether you escape to the beach on vacation or happily live every day along the shore, few landlubbers can deny the exhilaration of watching the tides wash against the sand, breathing crisp salt-tinged air, or dreaming about life beyond the horizon. This lovely little volume pays fitting homage to the powerful natural beauty of the coast by pairing evocative quotations with beautiful photographs of churning waves, pristine beaches, fishing boats, lighthouses, lobster traps, and more. Coast
makes a thoughtful gift for the beach-lover you know...or, better yet, the hostess who welcomes you into her seaside home! (KG)
