My grandparents on both sides were innkeepers -- my father's parents ran a lodge on Lake Mascoma in New Hampshire, and my mother's parents had a boarding house in Ocean Grove. My husband and I spend our summers in the Grove now that we're both retired from the University of Illinois. I sing in the Great Auditorium Choir and enjoy volunteering with the Ladies' Auxiliary. We both love trying out all the great restaurants within walking distance of the house and, of course, swimming at the beach.
