magic in the ocean

THE NIGHT BEFORE WE OPENED the 2018 Idea House in Habersham, South Carolina, our hosts at the Anchorage 1770 in nearby Beaufort took us on a little boat cruise. Amy and Frank Lesesne, who fell in love with the historic waterfront mansion, bought and renovated it, and opened it as an inn in 2015, said we hadn’t really seen the town until we’d seen it from the water. We walked across the street with a cooler full of refreshments, and within minutes we were cruising down the Beaufort River toward Parris Island. Classic Lowcountry homes with wide porches and long docks lined the banks, and the sun was setting over the spartina—or, as Beaufort local Pat Conroy once put it, “the vast green expanses of marsh, feminine as lace, delicate…

meet ed

RAISED ON THE SAND Ever since he was adopted at 8 weeks old, Ed has grown up a beach dog. “I knew as soon as he had all his puppy shots, I would take him to the shore,” says owner Karen Nalio of her now 4-year-old shepherd/husky/Lab mix. “On every walk, he drags me to the beach.” KEEPING COOL Whenever Nalio starts a game of fetch on the sand, Ed runs to the ball and digs until he’s made a deep hole—a perfect spot for cooling off on hot summer days. MORNING MEET-UPS Nalio takes Ed and her other rescue dog, Violet, to Asbury Park Beach first thing each day. They’re often joined by a group of fellow early-bird dog walkers, including their favorite: a woman who always brings great treats. BETTER BATHTIME Spa-quality…

the up-for-anything explorer

TRACEY’S TRIP TIPS HOW TO TRAVEL LIKE A TRAVEL EDITOR: “If you step into a new place with fresh eyes and an inquisitive nature, the adventure just happens.” FAVORITE BEACH SNACK: “Crinkle French fries with a hefty squirt of ketchup across them.” ROOKIE TRAVEL MISTAKE: “Staying put. There’s nothing wrong with planting yourself in a groovy lounge by a beautiful pool with a view of the Caribbean, but if that’s all you do, you should’ve just built a pool in your backyard.” PORTRAIT: THAYER ALLYSON GOWDY; COFFEE, MUG, BOOK, BAG, AND THROW: ROBBIE CAPONETTO; DRESS: STEPHEN DEVRIES; SUITCASE: COURTESY OF MANUFACTURER…

the salty foodie

CHRIS’S TRADEMARK MOVES COOKING PRO TIP: “There’s a certain energy in the kitchen. If you’re stressed, your food will never taste good, so listen to music. I just made a yacht rock playlist.” GO-TO PARTY TRICK: “An Irish goodbye.” NEVER TRAVELS WITHOUT: “Extra contacts. I lost my only pair in Jamaica one summer, and it traumatized me for life.” SUMMER READING LIST: “When in Maine, read like a Mainer: Stephen King. I also enjoy a lot of travel fiction and nonfiction in the summer.” PORTRAIT: LAUREY W. GLENN; SKILLET, COASTERS, AND MIXING GLASS: ROBBIE CAPONETTO; SHIRT: STEPHEN DEVRIES; ALL OTHER PRODUCTS: COURTESY OF MANUFACTURERS…

the trend (and table) setter

RACHAEL’S SUMMER CRUSHES DREAM VACATION: “I’m dying to go to a surf camp in Sayulita, Mexico.” CLOSET STAPLES: “Jeans and shoes are my kryptonite. In the summer, I wear white jeans every other day. And I love any kind of wedge or espadrille. I’m really into platforms right now.” SUMMER COCKTAIL: “Anything frozen floats my boat—piña coladas and margaritas are my favorites!” BEACH BAG MUST-HAVE: “I love a baseball cap, especially because I can wear it in the water.” PORTRAIT: LAUREY W.
