little tug, big dreams

It’s no secret that spending time on the water can inspire feelings of affection. For Lyndsay Caleo Karol, the heart-fluttering moment happened the minute she spotted a 1980s Lord Nelson Victory tugboat on New York’s Canandaigua Lake. “It was love at first sight,” says Lyndsay, who lives with her husband, Fitzhugh, in New York City. “I thought the owners would sell it to me, but it turns out they were just as in love, so I began the hunt for my own.” Lyndsay’s search ended shortly after, when she spotted a similar Victory tug in Stonington, Maine. Though the 49-foot recreational cruiser had a long history of turning heads—she’d even once been crowned Queen of the Miami Boat Show—when Lyndsay stumbled upon her, the tug had certainly seen better days. “She…

seaside sunrise

With the DNA of a rum punch (fruit juices stirred up with the islands’ most famed spirit) and the flair of a mimosa (welcome to the party, sparkling wine), this no-fuss cocktail works from one end of a beach day to the other. Think about it: The mimosa vibes are ideal for Sunday brunch—or breakfast any time there’s a gang around. On the other hand (of your ship captain’s clock), a rum punch pairs perfectly with a day trip on the boat, a back deck BBQ, or a sunset salute from the water’s edge. With easy proportions for batching ahead of time—just add bubbles at the last minute—this genius creation from the tropics can be on standby for summer fun of any kind, making every hour that much happier. THE RECIPE Combine…

Explore WILD PLACES LITTLE ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GEORGIA Naturalist Stacia Hendricks catches a bug, ninja-like, right out of the air. She keeps her quarry pinched firmly between her thumb and index finger while we—my husband and two sons, then ages 9 and 5—stare at her with an avidness bordering on awe. My boys break the silence, peppering Hendricks with questions about insects, animals, and this place full of wild things. This wilderness is Little St. Simons Island, and we’ve bumped into Hendricks while riding knobby-tire bikes to the beach. Here, under an arc of massive oaks that shades a sandy road, she describes the maritime forest of this 10,000-acre barrier island like a storyteller. I watch my boys take in the view of a natural world increasingly difficult to see, much less…

a tale of two condos

SEA FRESH ASHLEY GILBREATH When designer Ashley Gilbreath first met the Georgia client who hired her to tackle a brand-new condo in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, she knew one thing for sure: “This place had to be classic and polished but deliver some surprising personality, too,” says Gilbreath. “My client is one of those people who is effortlessly stylish, whose look you wish you could emulate. She’s impeccably dressed, a classic Southern lady, but she always has a way of pulling off a little something unexpected. I tried to take that approach within the walls of her condo.” The condo boasts an unusually large common space, with one wall of windows across the back, all of which face the Gulf of Mexico. The view predominates the space, which is a selling point, says…

reading the caribbean

A bookish kid from the get-go, Cindy Allman grew up in Jamaica reading everything she could. But what she was reading had very little to do with where she lived. “It was a very colonial list,” she says now, laughing. “Shakespeare. Nancy Drew. A big American influence.” But that’s all changed. About five years ago, Allman moved to Trinidad and Tobago and turned her literary appetite to a highly deserving but lesser-known booklist with Caribbean provenance. She read classics, found new writers, discovered publishers. Galvanized, she went from pilgrim to preacher. Now, as “Caribbean Girl Reading,” she promotes the region’s literature through her Instagram feed @bookofcinz, runs the BookOfCinz Book Club online and a lending library out of her home, and has launched Read Caribbean, a virtual literary event that aligns…
